This is...war on American citizens. By our own government. The fact that people can get drivers licences does NOT reflect on the back ground check the government did on me for TTI.

CBP Notifies NY It Will No Longer Process Trusted Traveller Applications or Renewals

Just saw a TV interview with the Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Chad Snow, He said that they notified NY State today that because of NY's passage of the Green Light Law DHS will no longer process any new or renewal applications for any Trusted Traveller program (GE, TSA pre-check) because the law prevents CBP access to DMV records, which CBP needs as part of the Trusted Traveller program application review. This will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

my understanding is that its not that people can get driver's licenses, its that DHS is now prohibited from accessing any NY DMV records. The interview also says because DHS will not have access to Title/etc vehicle history - the export of vehicles based in NY will also be delayed.

PS if DUI is disqualifying event - why should DHS continue with TTP for NY when they cant check those records? Not really "trusted traveller" anymore.

Makes sense, though, if NYS DMV truly isnt sharing info with the feds.

The stories seem conflicting, though. The headlines make it sound like current GE holders are affected, but the text says only enrollments and renewals.

Doesnt New York issue enhanced licenses that can be used to enter Canada? Is New York sharing info with Canada but not the U.S. federal government?

Enhance licenses dont share any info with Canada, they just serve as proof of US citizenship.

Theres no doc verification at all? Canada just trusts that the ID is real and valid?

Perhaps if a NYS resident signs a waver permitting DHS to access his/her records shouldn't this keep DHS "happy"?

Makes no sense as the only people who can't pass a background are trump family members, no illegals are using GE.
