REGAN v. WALD 468 U.S. 222 (1984)

A 1982 Treasury Department regulation prohibited travel-related business transactions with Cuba. Persons who wished to travel to Cuba, but were inhibited from doing so by the regulation, sued to enjoin its enforcement. The Supreme Court, 5–4, followed zemel v. rusk (1965) and haig v. agee (1981) in rejecting claims based on the right to travel protected by the Fifth Amendment's due process clause. The dissenters argued that Congress had not authorized the regulation.
