New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo speaks during a bill signing ceremony in New York

Last week, DHS suspended TTP applications and renewals for New Yorkers because of the state's new "Green Light" law, which allows undocumented immigrants to obtain drivers licenses and bars the DMV from giving up driver's license information without a court order.

But on Thursday, before traveling to Washington to meet with Trump, Cuomo pointed to a Homeland Security memo published by Buzzfeed earlier this week that outlined measures the department would take against states that limit access to driver records.

Roughly 200,000 New Yorkers are affected by the halt on applications, according to DHS, including 30,000 commercial truck operators who travel to Canada and Mexico.

Cuomo appeared on CNN Thursday morning before his meeting with the president, calling the administration's latest move, "extortion". Twelve other states and the District of Columbia also have passed laws allowing illegal immigrants to obtain licenses, but NY was unique in blocking DHS from accessing its DMV records. The law limits federal immigration authorities from accessing records from the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.

New York's DMV database now includes people who are in the us illegally but who have driver's licenses.

"I will never give them access to the DMV database", Cuomo said. "I believe they just want political noise because they really want to make their argument about immigration".

The governor claimed he stopped short of offering the administration "unfettered access" and said he would still resist efforts to use the registry for immigration enforcement.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Wednesday that the president simply wants to keep Americans safe.

"And by the way it's not just NY", he added.
