Cuomo says he'll ask Trump to reverse move on Global Entry

Cuomo says he'll ask Trump to reverse move on Global Entry

In a separate interview on another program, Cuomo added, "I'm calling their bluff by saying, you said you want access to the DMV database for TTP?"

Expect fireworks as President Trump and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo prepare to meet at the White House on Thursday for a tête-à-tête on immigration.

"They said, 'I'm burning down the house anyway, '" Cuomo said.

The law, which went into effect in December, allows undocumented immigrants to apply for ny driver's licenses while protecting applicants' information from immigration enforcement agencies.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf previously said that allowing federal authorizes to access the DMV database is the only way that NY residents can regain their access to Global Entry and similar Trusted Traveler programs. "Despite that, we will continue discussions with the state of NY to find a mutually agreeable solution".

Before Thursday's meeting, Trump criticized Cuomo on Twitter and insulted the governor's brother.

SA got off to a positive start and things looked good with Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen adding 63 runs for the second wicket. Morgan holed out to long-on off left-arm pace bowler Beuran Hendricks one delivery after reaching a fine 33-ball half-century.


The Trump administration said that cutoff from state records threatened public safety, and responded by blocking New Yorkers from enrolling in Global Entry and other "trusted traveler" programs.

"Cuomo must assert that we will not compromise our values and demand we draw a bright line between federal immigration enforcement and local law enforcement", he said in a statement.

"The relationship between New York State and the federal government is very important but has been made hard by the unilateral actions of New York State regarding the sharing of critical security information with DHS", he said.

NY residents who are now enrolled in Trusted Traveler Programs will be allowed to maintain their memberships until they expire - but memberships cannot be renewed nor can new applicants receive them.

The department has already suspended that and other Trusted Traveler Programs for NY residents in response to a state law, and The Northern Light reports deputy secretary Ken Cuccinelli says Washington residents could be next.

Trump, a lifelong New Yorker, a year ago changed his primary residence to Florida in a move that could lighten his tax bill.
