“A perceived ‘anti-welcome’ sentiment appears to be taking a toll in key international markets,” Ernest Wooden Jr., president of the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board, told MarketWatch. A recent forecast found that his own Los Angeles County could potentially lose 800,000 international visitors over three years, totaling $736 million in direct tourism spending.

In 2016, business and leisure travel generated $2.3 trillion for the U.S. economy,supporting 15.3 million American jobs. In fact, inbound international travel is America’s largest service export. Payment for goods and services purchased by foreigners created an $87 billion trade surplus, larger than any other sector of the US economy. Without all those visitors, our $500 billion trade deficit would be roughly 20% larger, a big deal for the economy.
