News Conference Set To Address Trusted Traveler Program Ban

The feud between the federal government and the state over border protection will be the focus of a news conference today in Buffalo.

The U.S. Attorney for Western New York, James Kennedy, will speak (at 11 a.m.) alongside officials from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the border patrol.

Last week, the federal government announced it has suspended applications for the Trusted Traveler Program for frequent border crossers from New York.

The government says the suspension is necessary because the state won't grant access to DMV data from illegal immigrants who are now eligible for driver's licenses.

Governor Cuomo says the suspension is political retaliation, and the state will take the feds to court.
