In March 2017, the U.S. government notified nine airlines that operate direct flights from the Middle East and Africa that personal electronics larger than cellphones would be banned on all direct flights entering the U.S. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security stated that the ban would affect 10 airports that it determined did not have adequate baggage security screening in place. The ban requires passengers to put all electronics larger than cell phones including laptops, cameras and e-readers in checked luggage. Passengers will still be able to fly with the items if they are stowed in their carry on luggage. Opponents argue that the ban discriminates against Muslim airline passengers and could pave the way for future restrictions against them. Proponents argue that the ban only affects 10 airports and will encourage them to expand screening of all checked baggage.  See recent Laptop Travel Ban news
