Gillibrand Statement On President Trump Lifting Global Entry Ban Targeting New Yorkers

Jul 23, 2020

Addressing the Trump administration’s announcement that they would be lifting the Department of Homeland Security’s ban on New York residents enrolling in Global Entry, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement:

“There was never a factual basis for banning New York residents from enrolling in Global Entry—the ban’s true purpose was to punish New York State for embracing diversity and inclusion. I am pleased that President Trump has reversed this deeply misguided policy and urge him to refrain from further abuses of power.”
