Trump administration blocks New York drivers from Global Entry, traveler programs over immigration law

E-mail Print PDF
Global entry denied to New York driversThe Trump Administration will prohibit New York residents from enrolling in programs that expedite border crossings, such as Global Entry, after the state blocked federal immigration authorities from accessing driving records and vehicle registration data.

The Department of Homeland Security's decision late Wednesday will keep New Yorkers from signing up for four federal programs that allow vetted, low-risk travelers to more easily cross foreign borders, including the various Canadian border points in New York.

The new federal policy is in direct response to New York's Green Light Law, which took effect in December and allows immigrants to seek driver's licenses regardless of whether they entered the country legally.
