On July 23, 2020, the Division of Homeland Safety (DHS) introduced that it’s going to carry its ban imposed on New York residents looking for to take part within the Trusted Traveler Program (TTP).
In February, DHS suspended the TTP for all New York residents in response to the Inexperienced Mild Regulation, which New York enacted final yr permitting its residents to acquire drivers’ licenses no matter immigration standing and limiting DHS’s entry to the state DMV data. Please see the unique Inside Enterprise Immigration weblog publish for extra info.
Based on DHS, the revised regulation will permit U.S. Customs and Border Safety (CBP) to entry these data “as needed for a person looking for acceptance right into a trusted traveler program, or to facilitate car imports and/or exports.”
“We admire the information-sharing to CBP for the trusted journey program,” stated Performing DHS Secretary Chad Wolf. DHS will resume processing New York residents beneath the TTP.
