Within hours after President Donald J. Trump was acquitted of the two charges for which he was impeached by the Democratic Party’s lawmakers, a “blue state” attorney general wasted no time in announcing her own anti-Trump investigation and lawsuit on Friday.
In the midst of a great political week for the Commander in Chief, New York State Attorney General Letitia James decided to join her fellow Democrats — Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and others — entered attack on Donald Trump. She decided to sue Trump over his lawful decision to disallow certain illegal aliens from entering the U.S. and enrolling or re-enrolling in the Trusted Traveler Programs (TTPs), such as Global Entry.
A.G. James told the news media and her fellow Democrats that her Office intends to sue the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) over a new federal policy that prohibits New Yorkers from enrolling or re-enrolling in the federal government’s Trusted Traveler Programs, especially those who were deported for committing crimes such as murder, rape, manslaughter, aggravated assault, felony property crimes and drug or human trafficking.
“Once again the Democrats are forcing citizens to sit in the rear of the bus or worse — under the bus,” claims former immigration agent Robert Sutton.
Not only that, but according to Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Friday night, the citizens of New York and states throughout the country will be forced to pay for: transportation to bring back deported criminal aliens, their legal expenses, their housing, all heathcare costs, food stamps and other federal or state programs
“This is political retribution, plain and simple, and while the president may want to punish New York for standing up to his xenophobic policies, we will not back down,” said Attorney General James. However, Ms. James is easily shown her rhetoric is false. The world’s realities make it necessary to protect the American citizens from terrorists, international organized crime, street gangs, rapists and other deadly or harmful individuals.
Although, FBI Director James Comey may have ignored his oath of office and became involved in questionable behavior to hurt Trump, he was correct when he told a House of Representatives committee that as far as “vetting” undocumented aliens before they’re allowed into the U.S., Comey and the FBI don’t know how to begin “vet” people who possess no documents.

“We plan to take legal action and sue the Trump Administration for its unfair targeting of New York State residents. This new policy will negatively impact travelers, workers, commerce, and our economy, so we will fight the president’s shortsighted crusade against his former home. We will not allow New Yorkers to be targeted or bullied by an authoritarian thug,” said Letitia James.
“It’s as plain as the nose on a politicians face: The Democrats wish to flood the U.S. with uneducated, low-intelligence and non-English speaking immigrants which they believe will give them total control of the vote,” said
“Time and time again President Trump and his Washington enablers have gone out of their way to hurt New York and other blue states whenever they can as punishment for refusing to fall in line with their dangerous and divisive agenda,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said. Cuomo has made several outrageous statements, and police officers in his state believe the statements are his attempt to avoid having to answer questions regarding his administration’s members who have been arrested on numerous charges.
“The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to ban New Yorkers from the Trusted Traveler Program is yet another example of this administration’s disrespect of the rule of law, hyper-partisan politics and use of extortion. There is no rational basis for this politically motivated ban,
and we are taking legal action to stop the federal government from inconveniencing New Yorkers to score political points,” said Cuomo, a vocal opponent of the Homeland Security Department
Despite 13 other states and the District of Columbia already passing laws similar to the one that New York passed allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain driver licenses, the Trump Administration on Wednesday singled out and targeted New York State and its residents by informing the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that New York residents could no longer enroll or reenroll in a number of Trusted Traveler Programs, including Global Entry, SENTRI (Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection), NEXUS, and FAST (Free and Secure Trade).
New York residents who are already active Trusted Traveler Program participants will not have Global Entry participation or participation in any of the other programs revoked. TSA Pre✓ does not seem to be affected at this time. Additionally, the DHS has stated that the exportation of used vehicles titled and registered in New York State could be delayed and could be costlier under its new policy.
The federal government’s decision to impose this new policy stems from New York’s Green Light law, which all but gives citizenship to illegal aliens.
