#PaxEx TV: Biometrics at the airport and travel in Trump’s America

All eyes are on America these days, as newly inaugurated President Donald Trump tries to flex his political muscle by imposing a travel ban on citizens of seven majority-Muslim nations which many feel is unconstitutional and fear will have a negative impact on travel and the economy.

In this episode of #PaxEx TV, we look at the ongoing political and legal skirmish over the ban, which was blocked last week by a federal appeals court. But we also highlight how innovators in the travel industry are working to improve border security and shorten airport wait times with technology instead.
