NTA responds to ruling on travel ban

June 26, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C., and LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 26, 2018) — Today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the travel ban initiated by the Trump administration, NTA President Pam Inman issued this statement:

“NTA has long advocated for freedom of travel … underscored by security. We’ve seen that when you roll up the welcome mat, there’s a ripple of rejection. Some travelers, even though not directly affected by the ban, perceive the U.S. as an unwelcoming destination. We have consulted with NTA members who handle inbound-U.S. travel, and while some have seen no loss of business, others experienced cancellations and reported a reduced interest in visiting the United States. Moving forward, we hope the U.S. government will employ policies and actions that keep us safe without deterring legitimate travelers and disrupting an important economic sector.”
