WASHINGTON (AP) – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has visited the White House in the hope he can persuade President Donald Trump to reverse a decision to boot New Yorkers from programs that allow travelers to avoid long lines at U.S. at the border.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf says the leaders held a “productive meeting.”
