The latest government statistics on international arrivals to the U.S. shows they continued to slide through last summer.

Nonresident international visitors to the U.S. decreased more than 1 percent in August 2017 compared with August 2016.

The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Travel and Tourism Office released the data Thursday.

Visitors from Mexico were down over 2 percent in August 2017 compared with August 2016. Canadians provided a bright spot: up nearly 4 percent, while visitors from other countries were down nearly 4 percent.

Nonresident international arrivals totaled nearly 49 million January through August 2017, an overall decrease of nearly 4 percent compared with the first eight months of 2016.

The U.S. travel industry has complained that the Trump administration's anti-immigrant policies and anti-foreigner rhetoric are dampening tourism.
