DHS Suspends Global Traveler, Trusted Traveler Programs For New York Over Illegal Alien Policies

One has to wonder which Democrat run states with sanctuary policies will be next. Will DHS go after California? There should be penalties for sheltering illegal aliens

DHS suspends Global Entry, Trusted Traveler Programs for New York residents in response to sanctuary law

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf exclusively told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that DHS was immediately suspending enrollment in Global Entry and several other Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) for all New York state residents — a dramatic move in response to the liberal state’s recently enacted sanctuary “Green Light Law.”

The sweeping order came a day after President Trump, in his State of the Union address, condemned left-wing states and local governments that “release dangerous criminal aliens to prey upon the public,” and called on Congress to pass a law establishing civil liability for sanctuary cities.

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).

“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 the vast majority of these cases, ICE relied on New York DMV records to fulfill its mission.”

Illegal immigrants rushed to New York DMVs in large numbers after the law, which allowed them to obtain driver’s licenses or learner’s permits regardless of their immigration status, took effect last December. The law also permitted applicants to use foreign documents, including passports, to be submitted in order to obtain licenses.

The NY Green Light law itself is written to enable illegals to easily obtain a driver’s license. If the illegal in question does not have a social security number, they cannot obtain a REAL ID. What of those using stolen SS#’s? Further, NY accepts documents that have been expired for up to 24 months, so, you could have someone who’s documents expired but will be accepted to be considered for a REAL ID.

The law, Wolf went on, “compromises CBP’s ability to confirm whether an individual applying for TTP membership meets program eligibility requirements.”

Because TTPs rely on states to verify individuals’ identities, New York residents “will no longer be eligible to enroll or re-enroll” in select TTPs — including Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, and FAST.

Twelve states and territories offer driver’s licenses for illegals along with New York: California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Washington, Illinois, Vermont, Massachusetts, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. New Jersey just passed a law that takes effect in 2021. Might be time to go after them, as well.

    States that follow Federal law should cancel repricocity laws with Sanctuary states and refuse to recognize drivers licenses, etc.

    I for one would like my state to stop allowing the immigration from those states mentioned in the article.

      Americans freedom to travel and reside in the state of their choosing is an American right and tradition
      Sending our excess Dem voters to red states is part of the SOROS master plan
      Virginia switched N.C. is next
      Then on to the big one Texas !!!

      • Chumpchange says:

        Virginia was bought and paid for by Bloomberg’s billions. No one doubts this. Dozens upon dozens of articles in the Newspapers supporting this claim

        Lawmakers probe US funding for Soros groups, left-wing causes in Europe.

        Soros funds OPEN SOCIETY which is an OPEN BORDERS OPERATION. The left pretends they do not want open borders.

        THEY ARE LYING!!

        A group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee — demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

        Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Steyer, Warren Buffett, T Boone Pickens just to name a few off the top of my head. All worshipped for their left-wing activity. There are dozens of more Leftist Billionaires including the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the owner of Quicken Loans. On and on the leftist list goes.

        All those leftists who hate MONEY seem to sure have pocket fulls of it.

        At one time the Democrats despised Billionaires. Not now. Not since those billions are being put to use for the communist cause. George Soros has been banned from several EU nations because he is trying to interfere with their internal process.

        At one time Democrats hated immigration. It was a master plan to destroy UNIONS. Now that the communist left no longer gives a shit about unions they suddenly embrace Immigration and OPEN BORDERS Vociferously.

        And the communist John keeps spouting his lies.

        Why do blue states spend more than they receive? It is simple. There are more people in blue states. Hence More people equal more taxes paid. The money goes to the federal coffers and is distributed to all 50 states as necessary.

        The US government has an agenda of keeping the interstate’s working. Railroads working. Delaware needs far less money than does Montana or Wyoming Or Nebraska to keep highways and railroads running.

        They are of national importance in the event of war they will be needed to quickly get Troops and equipment to the coastal ports for transport to whatever destination is needed.

        A state like Wyoming with 550,000 people pays a fraction a tiny fraction of what California pays and yet it has Interstate 80 and Interstate 25 going through its state not to mention 100k miles of railroads all which need to be maintained according to the federal government. Same with most Red states.

        Don’t let John lie to you. The reason red states receive more tax money is because they have fewer citizens to pay taxes but have more needs FORCED ON THEM BY THE GOVERNMENT.

    • John says:

      You may not want the immigration but you sure do like their tax dollars going ftom the rich blue states to the poor red states

      • Kye says:

        Unlike you commie leftists we don’t put a price tag on our History, Safety, Culture or Freedom. They can keep whatever puny tax dollars they generate. Send-them-back!

        Trump 2020 Let’s start disallowing America haters citizenship.

  2. John says:

    I am not a lawyer but I think that this will be decided by the Federal Court system
    Could Trump also force states that he doesn’t like to hold back tax refunds ?
    Aren’t all US citizens entitled to be treated equally by the Federal Government ?
    Teach what would be your reaction if Obama had done the opposite and tried to punish states for not doing what he wanted ?
    Teach under “states rights” do states have the right to refuse to enforce Federal laws ?

    • Kye says:

      “Could Trump also force states that he doesn’t like to hold back tax refunds ?”

      That’s a typical leftist commie answer. Whether Trump “likes” or “dislikes” a state has nothing to do with the situation. The fact that states are not obeying federal law does. If states decided to make abortion illegal what would you say then? You are the quintessential leftist hypocrite.

      “Aren’t all US citizens entitled to be treated equally by the Federal Government?”

      Yes they are and immigrants are NOT American citizens until they pass the gate keepers like my immigrant wife did. No cutting the line, no special privileges, no payoffs to Democrats for votes. Wait your turn, be THOUROUGHLY VETTED* and take your test.

      *How Biden helped an Al-Qaeda leader come to the USA.
      “After engaging in terrorism in Iraq, an Al Qaeda leader came to America as a refugee and applied for Social Security disability benefits because his “injuries” in Iraq had made it too hard for him to work.

      In 2006, Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri was the Emir of an Al Qaeda terrorist group in Fallujah. The Iraqi city was the scene of brutal battles between Al Qaeda and America. It was where American soldiers had suffered the most casualties in any battle since the Vietnam War. Despite multiple defeats, Al Qaeda remained deeply entrenched in the city and was even able to seize a number of neighborhoods in 2014.

      By then, Al-Nouri was living in Arizona.

      Only 2 years after being the Emir of an Al Qaeda group, Al-Nouri had traded the deserts of Al-Anbar for the deserts of the Southwest. How was an Al Qaeda leader able to move to the United States?

      Easy. He claimed to be a refugee from Al Qaeda.

      In 2008, the United States raised the refugee admission celling to 80,000 to accommodate the surge of Iraqis applying to come to the United States. The Iraqis claimed to be fleeing terrorism, but some, like Al-Nouri were terrorists, and our refugee resettlement program was not interested in telling them apart.

      A quarter of refugees that year were Iraqis. The Al Qaeda leader was one of 13,823 Iraqi refugees. The huge increase from 1,608 in 2007, made any real screening of the Iraqis all but impossible. And, worse still, Iraqis, like Al-Nouri, were in the top 3 refugee groups and their claims were processed ‘in-country’.

      “In-country processing”, as noted by the Center of American Progress, makes “the process less onerous and cumbersome for Iraqis seeking asylum by allowing for in-country visa processing, making screening less restrictive.” And what migrants from Al-Qaeda’s stronghold needed was less restrictive screenings.”

      Commiecrats hate America so much they allow our mortal enemies in. Hell, they put our mortal enemies in Congress.

      Trump 2020 Get rid of unAmerican Congresspeople.

  3. Ron B. Liebermann says:

    At issue here is the question of whether the government is authorized to give tax money to persons who are in the country illegally. The answer is “No”. So we have to ask a question, who is authorized to dispense funds? Well, that’s not an easy question to answer, because the government doesn’t want people to have that information. If you run a google search on “Who Dispenses Federal Funds” you get no results. But that’s impossible, because that question has been asked many times. So Google has banned this query.
