The travel ban issued by President Donald Trump in March, which bars travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, Syria and Libya from entering the United States and blocks all refugees for 120 days, was a massive blow to the car industry.
In April, the Trump administration announced the creation of a new department called the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
This new agency is tasked with overseeing all federal and state highway safety efforts.
It will oversee, among other things, the enforcement of all federal law and regulations and will be charged with enforcing the travel ban.
According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, the NHTSA has the authority to issue fines, revoke registrations, impose restrictions and other enforcement actions to enforce the travel bans.
“It’s been a disaster for the car manufacturers,” said Andrew Hwang, executive director of the American Automobile Association (AAA).
“There’s no question about it.
The NHTPA has been very aggressive in enforcing the president’s travel restrictions.
They’ve been issuing a lot of fines, revocation notices, suspensions and other sanctions.
That has created a lot more uncertainty than it would have otherwise.”
According a report from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), in March and April, more than 100 car companies and the trade association representing the auto industry filed suit against the Trump White House.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, charged that the travel restrictions violated the Constitution and federal law.
More from the Associated Press: The administration says it will review the case and that the new administration will take its time to assess the impact of the ban.
