Global Entry Suspended For New York Residents
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is closing the Global Entry program as well as other Trusted Traveler Programs in New York State in response to New York declaring itself as a sanctuary city with the “Green Light Law.”
New York residents will no longer be eligible to enroll or re-enroll in Trusted Traveler Programs based on this.

In a letter to top New York state officials obtained exclusively by Fox News, Wolf noted that the New York law prohibited state DMVs from sharing criminal records with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
