Fact Sheet: DHS is Taking on COVID-19 Related Fraud

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been working nonstop to protect the American people from criminals who are attempting to exploit fear for financial gain.

Acting Secretary Chad Wolf Statement on the President’s Executive Order on Duties and Fees Deferment for Certain Importers

“I applaud the President for signing this Executive Order, which gives the Administration the ability to help the trade community and U.S. businesses who keep critical supply chains for U.S. manufacturers moving during this unprecedented time. As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic response has created serious economic issues for many American businesses. This President and this Department have, and always will, put the American worker first.

ST-Opioid/Fentanyl Detection Project Fact Sheet

In 2013, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized two pounds of fentanyl. That number grew to 460 pounds in 2016, skyrocketed with seizures of nearly 1,400 pounds in 2017, and surpassed 1,800 pounds in 2018. Fentanyl enters the United States via two major routes: international mail/express consignment and land borders. This increases the need for upgrading and improving existing screening equipment and developing new solutions.  

Green Light Law

In response to New York State implementing the Driver’s License Access and Privacy Act (Green Light Law), Acting Secretary Chad F. Wolf announced New York residents will no longer be eligible to apply for or renew their enrollment in certain Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) like Global Entry. The law prohibits the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) from sharing information with U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), preventing DHS from fully vetting New York residents.

Statement from Acting Secretary Chad F. Wolf on the Meeting with President Donald J. Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

Acting Secretary Chad F. Wolf joined President Trump and Governor Cuomo for a productive meeting. The relationship between New York State and the Federal government is very important but has been made difficult by the unilateral actions of New York State regarding the sharing of security information with DHS. New York is the only State that restricts CBP access to their data across the board – for law enforcement, customs, trade and travel facilitation purposes. Despite that, we will continue discussions with the State of New York to find a mutually agreeable solution.
