[Ed. – Hardball. And fully warranted, given that the state’s sanctuary policies and driver’s licenses for illegals increase the likelihood that high security risk individuals may gain trusted-traveler status. DHS should do the same to California. (And I say that as a CA resident who went through a bruising gauntlet of documentation to get a RealID driver’s license last year, including not one but two agonizing visits to the DMV, an extended emergency search for a Social Security office that was open, and a certified, by-mail response to the DMV months later on a question I had ALREADY ANSWERED with full documentation on the very first visit.) DHS sanctions will also affect New York-based exporters of motor vehicles.]
The Trump administration’s new suspension of Global Entry and other Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) for New Yorkers is likely to affect some 800,000 people over the next five years, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations Todd Owen told Fox News on Thursday.
Approximately 86,000 New Yorkers would be affected immediately, Owen said …
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf had announced exclusively on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that DHS was suspending enrollment in several TTP for New York residents immediately in response to the liberal state’s recently enacted sanctuary “Green Light Law.”
