Trump Goes After New York Over Drivers License Policy


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Anu Joshi, the Senior Director of Immigrant Rights Policy at the New York Immigration Coalition.


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo met with President Trump on Thursday to negotiate a resumption of the “trusted travelers” programs that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had recently suspended in his state.

In a letter to New York State official, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that the move was in direct response to the recent passage of the Driver's License Access and Privacy Act in New York.

The law allowed undocumented immigrants the right to obtain legal drivers licenses and protects their identity from the federal government.
