U.S. Sees Drop in Travelers from 6 Majority Muslim Countries in Trump Executive Order

Katherine Rodriguez, Breitbart, June 13, 2017

The number of nonimmigrant visas issued to travelers from the six majority-Muslim countries in President Trump’s immigration executive order has dropped dramatically since Trump’s inauguration.

Of the foreign travelers who came to the U.S. from the six countries, 2,013 travelers came in April, down from the 2,551 that arrived in March- a 21 percent decrease, according to Roll Call‘s analysis of a State Department report.

That number is almost half the amount of travelers from those countries that came to the U.S. when former President Barack Obama was in office last year, with 4,454 coming into the country.


Trump’s travel ban is going before the Supreme Court for review after the 9th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled against it Monday.
