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.
Once again, President Trump proved he will stand strong to secure our borders. Under his leadership, DHS has implemented a series of common sense reforms that utilize the authorities granted to us by Congress. We’ve built more than 100 miles of new border wall system and reduced the number of illegal border apprehensions for eight consecutive months. We are also rooting out meritless and fraudulent asylum claims while prioritizing humanitarian protections for those who are in need, and at the same time, we have naturalized more new Americans last year than in each year of the previous decade. Most importantly, President Trump is keeping the American people safe.
