Dream9 Released; Setting a Legal Precedence

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Article 13. Section (2):

“Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country”

According to many sources, members of the Dream9 group have been released from custody where they were held for several days in a privately owned Immigrant Detention Center in Arizona.

The question is does this set a legal precedence for international travel for those who are undocumented living in the United States. Currently, undocumented persons cannot travel internationally and be allowed to re-enter. But, with the events that are currently unfolding involving the #Dream9, this legal statute is being directly challenged and a new legal/administrative stature could be established.
