NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted Attorney General James’ motion for a summary judgment and vacated the Trump Administration policy that attempted to prohibit New Yorkers from enrolling or reenrolling in the federal government’s Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP):

“Our lawsuit against DHS was always about stopping the president’s politically-motivated and retaliatory rule, which sought to punish New York for enacting its own state laws. Today’s decision will restore Global Entry and other Trusted Traveler Programs to New Yorkers and marks a major victory for travelers, workers, commerce, and our state’s economy. We will continue to defend New York’s sovereign rights and will fight to protect our state’s residents.”
