President Donald Trump and Governor Andrew Cuomo failed to reach an agreement Thursday to resolve a dispute over the administration’s decision to ban New York State residents from using programs that allow speedier customs and immigration checks.

Trump and Cuomo met Thursday at the White House to discuss the Department of Homeland Security’s announcement last week that it would no longer permit New Yorkers to sign up for or renew enrollments in the Trusted Traveler programs, citing new limits on federal access to state driver’s license data intended to protect undocumented immigrants.
