I believe that the congress is planning to offer citizenship to Elian and
his father. With full rights of being American citizens, does the father
have the right to return back to Cuba with his son? The assumption always
seems to be that nobody would want to go back if they didn't have to. What
if the father is given a full range of legal options, and still choses to
take his family back to Cuba? Would that be acceptable to the people
wanting to keep Elian here?
