Breaking: Global Entry Suspended for New York Residents Along with Trusted Traveler Programs

by Zoe

Global Entry and several other Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) have been suspended for all New York state residents as per Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf. It appears that this impacts only new applicants, though Point Me is still confirming. The brash decision is apparently in response to NY’s recently enacted sanctuary “Green Light Law.”

“The law compromises CBP’s ability to confirm whether an individual applying for TTP membership meets program eligibility requirements, as a result, New York residents “will no longer be eligible to enroll or re-enroll” in select TTPs — including Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, and FAST.”

If only Chad Wolf shared the same fate as people seeking asylum. Alas he’s a white male from the racist south.

I would read that you can’t “re-enroll” to mean current users are done when they hit their expiration date, but they are good until then. But you never know with government.

It is not the fault of the federal government. Blame NY government. GE requires one to be trusted and one is ineligible when one has DUI. How are CBP suppose to verify ones DUI records if state wont share data?

I’m not sure if it’s a “brash decision:”. If it’s true NY won’t provide the information that’s needed to properly research for approval then the whole process is jepoardized.
