Either the Atlantic Charter nor any authoritative interpretation of the U.S. policy in regard to its implementation is specific on the subject of international migration. Both the declaration and its numerous commentaries make it clear that movements of goods beyond national boundaries call for joint regulation in the spirit of mutuality, but except for article seven, which demands that the peace should enable all men to traverse the high seas and oceans without hindrance, there is no reference to the movement of persons, and that article says nothing about any right of men to admission after they have traversed the seas. Probably no modern government would readily concede such a right. The subject is not mentioned in public declarations because even the democracies are not yet ready to permit each other a voice in deciding under what conditions aliens may be admitted or may be entitled to rights of citizenship. In this country, during the long and heated discussion of immigration policies, the point has rarely been made that a successful regulation of the international exchange of persons, like that of the international exchange of goods, ultimately rests on a recognition of mutual interests.
