“The city’s tourism marketing agency, NYC & Company, plans to announce that its forecast for international visitors has turned from positive to negative since Mr. Trump was elected in November.

It’s probably both. Although it’s never been easy to get into the US & Canada as a tourist even if you’re European. If you want to immigrate though, the door’s open. That’s the logic of the social left.
