Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf announced that DHS will be immediately suspending Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) for all New York residents, including Global Entry, NEXUS, Sentri, and FAST as of Feb. 5, 2020. The suspension will apply to new enrollment, as well as re-enrollment. It should be noted that this suspension does not include TSA PreCheck.
This suspension is in response to New York’s “Green Light Law,” which allows any New York resident to obtain driver’s licenses or learner’s permits, regardless of immigration status. The state of New York does not allow the state DMV to share criminal records with Customs and Border Protection, or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
GT will continue to monitor this developing situation with New York residents. Please contact your attorney if you have additional questions.
