State lawmakers inserted the data-blocking provision into the bill a week before it passed, when immigrant organizations and Cuomo expressed concern that ICE and CBP would be able to easily obtain information about immigrants seeking a license, perhaps making it easier for them to be deported. The only exceptions are if the DMV commissioner is served with a lawful court order or judicial warrant according to the law. Even then, the DMV has to notify the person at the center of a federal agency’s inquiry within three days. DMV spokeswoman Lisa Koumjian said the state agency is bound by the law. No negotiations are underway to restore the federal agencies’ access to the database, she said.
