Fox News is reporting that Department of Homeland Security is closing the Global Entry program and other Trusted Traveler Programs in New York in response to NYC declaring itself a sanctuary city with their “Green Light Law” and awarding driver’s licences without verifying immigration status.
As a result, New York State residents will no longer eligible to enroll or re-enroll in select TTPs — including Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, and FAST. However current enrollees can continue to use those services until expiration.
It appears that NY residents can still enroll in Pre-Check.
NY residents can also use the Mobile Passport app as an alternative to Global Entry.
NY residents, will you try you get a driver’s license from another state to get Global Entry?
