If you are a New York state resident, and are trying to apply for one of the Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP), you have to thank your State’s democratic leaders for the recent suspension of Global Entry and several other TTPs, due to the Department of Homeland Security’s response to the liberal state’s recently enacted sanctuary “Green Light Law.”
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf exclusively told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that DHS was immediately suspending all these programs for all New York state residents.
“In New York alone, last year ICE arrested 149 child predators, identified or rescued 105 victims of exploitation and human trafficking, arrested 230 gang members, and seized 6,487 pounds of illegal narcotics, including fentanyl and opioids,” Wolf wrote in a letter to top New York state officials. “In the vast majority of these cases, ICE relied on New York DMV records to fulfill its mission.”
The law, Wolf went on, “compromises CBP’s ability to confirm whether an individual applying for TTP membership meets program eligibility requirements,” and will “delay a used vehicle owner’s ability to obtain CBP authorization for exporting their vehicle.”
As a result, New York residents “will no longer be eligible to enroll or re-enroll” in select TTPs — including Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, and FAST.
