How Trump’s Immigration Ban May Impact Your Airport Wait Time
You may be wondering how President Trump’s travel ban, which was put in place on Jan. 27, and immediately prohibited citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country for 90 days – and was blocked nationwide by a federal judge soon thereafter – may affect you. Three federal judges are expected to reach a decision this week on the immigration ban, and while the outcome is still unclear, here are few key takeaways and top things to anticipate before your next trip.
Though the protests across U.S. airports immediately following the ban did not trigger widespread delays or interfere with immigration wait times, ground transportation was affected by the directive. And according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website, airport wait times saw a significant spike on Jan. 27, the day the ban was instituted, but returned to their normal range within 24 hours.
