Times Literary Supplement, May 2000
This commentary in the Times Literary Supplement concerned the case of the Cuban refugee boy Elian Gonzalez, and argued that the Clinton administration was right in concluding that, in the case of a six year old child, his father was the competent person to determine whether he should remain in the United States or return to Cuba. It argued that American conservatives betrayed the fundamental principle of parental rights over the upbringing of their children to which conservatives generally attach themselves.
