Bloomberg News reports:
New York sued to block the Trump administration’s plan to bar state residents from enrolling in federal Trusted Traveler programs like Global Entry, which allows pre-screened participants to breeze through airport passport and customs checks.
President Donald Trump is seeking to punish the state for opposing many of his policies, said New York Attorney General Letitia James, who filed the suit on Monday.
The state is claiming his administration’s actions violate the U.S. Constitution as well as the law that created the Trusted Traveler programs in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The plan to sue was announced on Friday by Gov. Cuomo.
