The Trump administration says New York state residents can no longer participate in certain Trusted Traveler programs, including Global Entry, in retaliation for New York’s pro-immigrant law, the Green Light Law. This law allows undocumented people to apply for driver’s licenses while protecting their personal information from immigration agencies. Global Entry allows for faster clearance in customs for those enrolled in the program when they enter the United States. The Trump administration’s move is part of its effort to retaliate against cities and states with pro-immigrant policies, including so-called sanctuary laws.
