To Break ‘Trusted

Traveler’ Deadlock

President Trump and Governor Cuomo were unable to break a deadlock over the “Trusted Traveler” program.

Governor Cuomo visited the White House yesterday but was unable to persuade President Trump to allow New Yorkers back in the federal “Trusted Travel” program.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told reporters that Cuomo and Trump held a “productive meeting.” He called the relationship between the state of New York and the federal government an important one but said it “has been made difficult by the unilateral actions of New York State regarding the sharing of critical security information with DHS.”

The Trump Administration announced it was curtailing the program in New York because the “Green Light” Law granting driver’s licenses to illegal aliens and cut off federal access to state DMV records, preventing the U.S. Customs & Border Control Agency from properly vetting “Trusted Traveler” applicants.
