Hawaii fears that Trump’s travel ban could jeopardize tourism and economy

Published on : Thursday, March 16, 2017

HawaiiThe announcement of President Trump’s second travel ban has given rise to fears that Hawaii’s main economic strength – tourism, can face a negative effect. Hawaii is one of the biggest crowd pullers in terms of attracting tourists from all over the world, and this ban can have a big toll on the US state’s popularity.

 
Hawaii’s white sand beaches, towering volcanoes and relaxing tropical vistas attract millions of visitors annually from around the globe.

 
But the announcement of President Donald Trump’s second travel ban has stoked fears that the state’s main economic driver — tourism — could take a hit. Although visitors from the affected countries are relatively few, Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin has warned of a “chilling effect” that could discourage international travel to the U.S. from all corners.

 

According to Chin, “There are already reports that due to these executive orders and travel bans, people are less inclined to travel to the United States.” Hawaii is fearing the ban, saying it goes against the state’s welcoming “aloha” spirit and could do long-term harm to tourism by creating a global perception that the U.S. is an exclusionary country. Six other states — Washington, California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Oregon — have filed a separate lawsuit alleging the ban is unconstitutional and hurts states’ residents, businesses and educational institutions.
