DHS Secretary Announces to Tucker: New Yorkers Will Now Suffer for Sanctuary Laws

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf revealed to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night that the DHS was immediately suspending several Trusted Traveler Programs—including Global Entry—for all New York state residents, claiming the move was in response to the state’s recent passage of the so-called Green Light Law.

During Wolf’s interview on his primetime Fox News program, Carlson described the New York law—which allows undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses—as a “massive security threat to the rest of the country” since it gives government IDs to “people here illegally.”

“I would say that today, we sent a letter to New York indicating because they took these measures, that New York residents no longer are eligible to enroll in these Trusted Traveler Programs,” the acting DHS chief said, confirming to the Fox host that it impacted everyone in New York.
