Canada now commenting on NY's Green Light law

02.10.20 | Brandon Dickson

It comes after Governor Cuomo announced New York state will sue the federal government's decision to ban New Yorkers from the trusted traveler program over the state's controversial Green Light Law, which allows illegal immigrants to apply for driver's licenses.

In Ontario, Town of Fort Erie Mayor Wayne Redekopt says this will negatively affect both the U.S. and Canada’s economy.

 

Federal agencies say New Yorkers can no longer travel through border crossings using the trusted traveler program because it's a safety risk.

Currently around 800,000 people in the Empire State participate in that program.
