Cross border advocates join forces to fight NEXUS suspension in NY

NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO (WIVB) Nineteen days after the US Department of Homeland Security announced that it will suspend New York residents’ ability to enroll or re-enroll in the Trusted Traveler Program, advocates for cross border commerce are joining forces to call for a reversal of the decision.

The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce on the Canadian side are joining the Buffalo Niagara Partnership in firing off a letter to the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security urging him to reverse a decision that suspended any New York residents from applying or renewing their membership in the Trusted Traveler program.
