拒绝合法移民除了对经济、移民关系和文化造成负面影响外，还对美国的旅游业和交换生行业造成了现实的损害。许多经济分析人士认为，受移民政策影响最大的两大经济领域是旅游业和交换生行业。拒绝合法移民政策的出现极大地损害了旅游业和学生交换业的发展，因为它导致外国消费者减少，因为该政策设置了移民壁垒。首先，拒绝合法移民直接损害了美国旅游业的经济表现，因为它迫使许多潜在的游客选择其他国家而不是到达美国。据《福克斯新闻》(Fox news) 2018年刊登的托内洛(Tonello)的一篇新闻报道，特朗普政府拒绝合法移民的计划，是为了“阻止、拖延和挫败”人们来美国旅游。具体来说，值得注意的是，拒绝合法移民给外国游客获得旅游签证带来了明显的障碍，因为美国的移民机构对外国游客来美国的意图进行了更严格的审查。有迹象表明未来移民意图的外国游客被拒绝申请旅游签证，因为拒绝合法移民是为了限制和拒绝潜在的移民。因此，外国游客在更长的时间内必须经历一个复杂的过程来通过他们的旅游签证申请。因此，外国游客不被鼓励到美国旅游，因为他们对美国产生了不满和不信任的情绪。这种情绪对美国旅游业的发展造成了极大的危害，因为它能够借助社交媒体的力量接触到大量潜在的游客。因此，美国旅游业面临着外国游客数量减少的紧迫挑战。
Apart from the negative influences over economy, immigrant ties, and culture, the rejection of legal immigration also results in realistic damages to tourism and the student exchange industry in the United States. Many economic analysts believe that the two major economic sectors that are under great impacts of immigration policy are tourism and the student exchange industry. The emergence of the rejection of legal immigration policy proves of great detriment to the development of tourism and the student exchange industry, because it results in decreased consumers from foreign nations because of the immigration barriers established by the policy.First of all, the rejection of legal immigration directly harms the economic performance of the tourism industry in the United States, because it forces many potential visitors to choose other nations instead of arriving in America. According to a news article published by Tonello (2018) in Fox News, the rejection of legal immigration planned by the Trump administration serves to “prevent, delay, and frustrate people” to arrive in America for tourism. Specifically, it deserves to be noticed that the rejection of legal immigration results in notable barriers for foreign people to get a tourist visa, because the immigration institution in the United States introduces stricter examination of the intentions of foreign tourists in arriving in America. Foreign tourists who show signs of future immigration intentions are denied applications of tourist visas, because the rejection of legal immigration seeks to limit and reject potential immigrants. Thus, foreign tourists have to undergo a complicated process in a longer period to pass their applications for tourist visas. As a result, foreign tourists are discouraged from going for tourism in America, as they develop a sentiment of dissatisfaction and mistrust with the United States. This sentiment proves of great harm to the development of the tourism industry for the United States, because it is able to reach massive potential tourists with the power of social media. As a result, the tourism industry in America is exposed to the pressing challenges of decreased numbers of foreign tourists.
