As a follow up to our January 30 Special Report, iJET's Editor in Chief, Ed Daly hosted an update webinar with guest speaker Alejandro N. Mayorkas, former Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security and iJET Analyst, Sean Wolinksy from the Americas team. The panel addressed the timeline and key provisions of this Executive Order, known and potential impacts for global businesses and the travel industry, and provided an update on the current state of legal proceedings generated by the order.
