President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio "have lost their collective minds" for moving to end databases that track people who come to the U.S. from countries with active terror groups, former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"This is absolutely crazy," Hoekstra, who represented Michigan in Congress for nearly 20 years, told "The Steve Malzberg Show."

Obama plans to end the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System before President-elect Donald Trump takes office Jan. 20, The New York Times reported.

"So let me get this straight: It's OK for President Obama to have access to this data for the last five years to help keep America safe and for the FBI and other law-enforcement to have access to this data or potentially have access to this data — but it's not OK for a future president to have access to this data?" Hoekstra posed.

"It's OK for Bill de Blasio and the New York Police to have access to this data for all of 2016, but beginning in 2017, no one may have access to this data because it's gone? 

"It's an arrogant breach of their trust to the American people."
