Acting Director of ICE to Hold News Conference From Rensselaer County Jail


The Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is expected to pay a visit to Troy Thursday.

Matthew Albence will be the special guest at a mid-morning news conference at the Rensselaer County Jail, as area law enforcement officials continue their push-back on the new Green Light law, which allows illegal immigrants to apply for a driver's license, but slams the door on federal access to the state's DMV database.

Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola has been a staunch opponent of the law from day one, but tells WGY News its impact has not really been felt in this area.

Albence's visit comes on the heels of a White House meeting between President Trump and Governor Cuomo over Homeland Security's decision to keep New Yorkers out of Trusted Traveler pre-screening programs.
