California has been the hardest hit by the travel restrictions put in place by the Trump administration, with airports across the state facing closure.
The state’s two biggest airports – Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport – were closed on Sunday due to the new travel restrictions and the cancellation of a number of scheduled flights.
The Trump administration has ordered that all travelers departing from these airports be required to submit their immigration documents to authorities by Tuesday.
The California Department of Transportation said it will suspend flights to and from the states on Monday, while flights from Los Angeles to San Francisco are also suspended.
A new round of travel restrictions has also been announced, banning travel to Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.
California Governor Jerry Brown announced on Sunday that he has directed the state’s Department of Public Health and Sanitation to restrict all public-health activities to five days a week.
The travel restrictions are being implemented by the state department of health, which is under the Trump Administration.
The California State Senate passed a bill in January to reinstate some of the restrictions but it was stalled by the Republican governor, Jerry Brown, who was reelected on the same ticket in 2020.
But on Monday the bill was passed with all Republicans in favour and all Democrats opposed.
“It’s the most restrictive travel restrictions we’ve seen in a long time,” said Kevin McLeod, who works for the San Francisco office of the National Association of Counties, which represents counties and cities.
“It will take a very long time for these restrictions to be fully implemented.
But we expect the federal government will start implementing these restrictions, and we will be here until the last minute.”
