February 10, 2020 – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will no longer issue new membership or renewals in their Trusted Travel Programs to state of New York residents. This is due to N.Y.’s recently passed Green Light Law, which restricts CBP’s access to N.Y. Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records.
Travelers using CBP’s Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI programs may be affected.
The Vehicle Export program will also be affected, as N.Y. titled vehicles may be de-prioritized when supporting documents are not able to be authenticated.
CBP’s Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program for commercial vehicles may also be affected for drivers who are registered in N.Y. state.
The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA’s) PreCheck program is currently not affected.
New York state reacted by plans to file a lawsuit.
