Mass. governor bans travel to US, cancels plans for state-run travel

New Hampshire Gov.

Maggie Hassan (D) on Monday canceled her planned state-operated trip to the United States, citing a travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries as the reason.

Hassan said the State Department had provided her with a travel authorization that allowed her to travel to New York, but she was told that it would be inadvisable because of the travel ban.

She said she was also told that the State and local governments in New Hampshire would be able to cancel their trips, but that it was up to the individual municipalities to decide if they wanted to comply.

New Hampshire is one of several states that have banned certain individuals from traveling to the US because of Trump’s travel ban and the subsequent travel ban of citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Syria.
