Funny you ask. It was a decade of bureaucracy and uncertainty. So when I got it in mail, guess what it said : ‘Know your rights and read this pamphlet’

Yes, your green card is now invalid. Put it in the shredder, pack up, call it a day. Don’t shred your green card please

I would like to know who hired you. Someone should get fired for hiring you

Green Card Holder = Permanent Resident. Heard of Google? Try using it more, will help!!!

So you went thru the entire process of obtaining a green card but have no idea what it is you received ? Wow.

🤦‍♂️
