News Reports say Trump Administration will drop battle over Trusted Traveler Programs, following AG James' lawsuit.

New York Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement after news agencies reported that the Trump Administration will end a federal policy, issued earlier this year, that prohibits New Yorkers from enrolling or reenrolling in the federal government’s Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP):

“The Trump Administration backing down and restoring Global Entry and other Trusted Traveler Programs to New Yorkers is a victory for travelers, workers, commerce, and our state’s economy. This policy was political retribution, plain and simple, which is why we filed our lawsuit to stop the president from targeting and punishing New Yorkers in the first place. We will continue to defend New York’s right to pass its own laws and will fight to protect our state’s residents anytime they are bullied by the president because safety and fairness are not mutually exclusive under the law.”

Attorney General James filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the two agencies’ acting-leaders in February after the agencies announced they would end a number of Trusted Traveler Programs in New York, including Global Entry, SENTRI (Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection), NEXUS, and FAST (Free and Secure Trade).
