FAQ

If you have a green card, do you also need a passport to fly from Canada to the US?
As far as the US government is concerned, No, with a valid green card, you do not need a passport to enter the US, no matter how you travel. From this FAQ from the CBP:U.S. LPRs do not need a passport to enter the United States as per 8 CFR 211.1(a), […]Or see the CBP’s Carrier Information Guide (page 28):A Lawful Permanent Resident may travel to the United States without a passport with a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551).It is possible the airline may require you to have a passport even though the US doesn’t require you to. However most flights from Canada to the US go through US preclearance in Canada, in which case the airline would not have any reason to care about travel documents anyway, as you would have already “entered” the US prior to the flight (which is basically considered a domestic flight).
U.S. Department of Homeland Security: When did the DHS start to become involved in copyright enforcement?
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) has been closely knit with cyberspace law enforcement for many years, most specifically because of its mission to protect the illegal exploitation of children.In the kinetic world, ICE is tasked with halting human trafficking and smuggling in the United States, among many other duties.  In cyberspace, the exploitation of children has found a new medium to propagate, and ICE spearheads the effort to rid the net of child pornography.  Because its law enforcement team performs operations, intelligence gathering, and investigations in cyberspace, it makes sense for fraud, counterfeiting and other crimes to fall under their jurisdiction as well.Included in this mission is protecting intellectual property from being compromised via cyberspace.  When you see a web site which has been marked as under investigation for copyright infringement, it is because ICE or its partners in law enforcement (i.e. the FBI) have asked or forced the host to remove the site from the Internet.The DHS guidelines on copyright enforcement are nothing special-- they simply enforce U.S. law on intellectual property.
Can I travel with an expired passport if I have a green card?
As far as the US government is concerned, a US permanent resident with a green card is not required to have a passport at all (let alone an expired or unexpired one) to enter the US. And the US government does not require that airlines require a passport for people with green cards traveling to the US. See this Q&A from the CBP:United States (U.S.) LPRs do not need a passport to enter the U.S.And from the Carrier Information Guide, page 28:A Lawful Permanent Resident may travel to the United States without a passport with a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551).However, the airline can still choose to require a passport, or the departing country’s rules could require a passport to board a flight.
Can a green card holder enter the US with a passport having less than 6 months remaining?
Yes, and in fact, a returning US permanent resident with a valid green card is not required to have a passport to enter the US at all. See this Q&A from the CBP:United States (U.S.) LPRs do not need a passport to enter the U.S. as per 8 CFR 211.1(a)And from page 28 of the CBP Carrier Information Guide:A Lawful Permanent Resident may travel to the United States without a passport with a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551).
Can I schedule an appointment with a US consulate to get an I-551 stamp on my passport since my Green Card is expired?
Sure, but the embassy will likely issue you a “travel letter,” after you file Form I-131A, Application for Travel Document (Carrier Documentation) not an I-551 stamp. The letter allows the airline to board you without your entry document (green card). The travel letter will be processed in secondary upon your arrival at the US Port of Entry. It is unlikely the airline or any other carrier will allow you to board without the required entry document(s) as they will be subject to a fine of over $3,000.You are required to have a valid unexpired green card when presenting yourself for admission to the US. However, this has been a source of policy changes over the years. At one time, it was required that the Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) with an expired card or with no card be required to have an approved I-192 Waiver of Inadmissibility (current fee: $930.00), if they were to be admitted. Under some conditions, the LPR could be granted an I-192 fee waiver. Other times, before being admitted, the LPR was required to complete an I-90 application to renew their green card and pay the associated fees ($455 processing and $85 bio-metric). Fees may vary with age of the applicant and situation.When I retired 2 1/2 years ago the policy was to advise the LPR presenting an expired card to renew as soon as possible and admit them as an LPR, if otherwise eligible. However, if you do not have your green card, you will be sent to secondary for your situation to be resolved. (Have a good attitude with the officer, as some fees and decisions are discretionary.)Once again, regulations clearly require a valid, unexpired green card for admission, and policy regarding the enforcement of regulations change, and sadly, may vary from port to port and with officer knowledge. So, my advice: get the travel letter if you are out of the states. If you are in the states: plan ahead, complete your I-90 Green Card Renewal Online to renew your card before departure. If you have an urgent need to depart the US, contact USCIS for expedited services (Emergency Travel)Good luck?
How can I travel on aboard an international flights to the United states to see an immigration judge when my permanent resident card has expired?
You don’t just ask to go to immigration court. You are placed in immigration proceedings (e.g. deportation) in immigration court by the government, either after you are denied entry, or when you are inside the US and the government believes you to be deportable. You must be in the US in the first place in order to be removed.If you make it to a US port of entry, the immigration officer at entry has the discretion to admit you as a permanent resident if he/she believes that you have not abandoned residence, even if your card is expired and/or you have been outside the US for 1 year. If the immigration officer does not want to admit you as a permanent resident, and you refuse to sign the form to voluntarily relinquish your permanent residency, the immigration officer will temporarily let you in and give you a notice to appear in immigration court for removal proceedings, where you can argue to the immigration judge that you have not abandoned residence.The problem is that you must somehow get to a US port of entry inside the US in order to do this. If you are not inside the US, you cannot be placed into removal proceedings, because you cannot be “removed” from the US.The US government actually allows airlines to board you for travel to the US with an expired 10-year green card, without needing a transportation letter or anything else. See the CBP carrier information guide, page 28:Cards with expired I-551s may be boarded without penalty if the card was issued with a 10-year expiration date.However, I am not sure if there are any airlines that are willing to board you with an expired green card, even though they are allowed to. If the airline refuses to board you, and you have been abroad for less than 1 year, you can file form I-131A with a US consulate to apply for a “transportation letter” that allows the airline to board you. On the “Special Instructions” section on that web page, it confirms that a transportation letter is not necessary for an expired 10-year green card, but if the airline won’t board you, you might need one anyway:If you have an expired Green Card, you may not need to file Form I-131A. Although regulations generally require an LPR to travel with a valid Green Card, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) policy permits a transportation carrier bound for the United States to allow you to board without carrier documentation if you:Are an LPR with an expired Green Card that was issued with a 10-year expiration date (and you have been outside of the U.S. for less than a year);[…]Check with your airline or transportation carrier before you file Form I-131A because, in some situations, the airline or transportation carrier may still refuse to let you board even if you are in one of the categories above. In that case, you will need to file a Form I-131A.If you have been outside the US for more than 1 year, the consulate will not issue you a transportation letter, and will insist on you applying for an SB-1 returning resident visa, which requires you to prove that you couldn’t return earlier due to circumstances beyond your control, which is very hard to do and rarely successful.Alternately, if you can find a way make it to Canada or Mexico, you can seek entry at a US land border port of entry without worrying about whether an airline will board you for travel to the US.
What are the steps that I can take when my Green Card expires while I'm overseas, and I don't have a travel document (re-entry permit)?
First, note that the US government allows airlines to board you for travel to the US with an expired 10-year green card, without needing a transportation letter or anything else. See the CBP carrier information guide, page 28:Cards with expired I-551s may be boarded without penalty if the card was issued with a 10-year expiration date.However, I am not sure if there are any airlines that are willing to board you with an expired green card, even though they are allowed to. If the airline refuses to board you, and you have been abroad for less than 1 year, you can file form I-131A with a US consulate to apply for a “transportation letter” that allows the airline to board you. On the “Special Instructions” section on that web page, it confirms that a transportation letter is not necessary for an expired 10-year green card, but if the airline won’t board you, you might need one anyway:If you have an expired Green Card, you may not need to file Form I-131A. Although regulations generally require an LPR to travel with a valid Green Card, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) policy permits a transportation carrier bound for the United States to allow you to board without carrier documentation if you:Are an LPR with an expired Green Card that was issued with a 10-year expiration date (and you have been outside of the U.S. for less than a year);[…]Check with your airline or transportation carrier before you file Form I-131A because, in some situations, the airline or transportation carrier may still refuse to let you board even if you are in one of the categories above.

Or, if he/she refuses to let you in, and you refuse to voluntarily give up your permanent residency, he/she will place you in removal proceedings in immigration court, and the immigration judge can let you in as a permanent resident if he/she determines that you have not abandoned residence.
Is Trump doing well as President?
Original Question: Is Donald Trump doing a good job or bad job as President, and why do you think that?Thank you for the A2A, Tom HandyAs I have said recently, it is utterly incomprehensible to me that anyone could have voted for someone who is so completely narcissistic and willing to harm others for his own personal gain as Donald Trump is willing to do. To me, people who are willing to do that suffer from tremendous lack of empathy—at best. It is quite possible that many of those who voted for him did so from outright malice against certain groups.Having said that, though Donald Trump is absolute excrement as a human being, it is at least theoretically possible that he has been an effective President.I am going to do my best to be objective.And in being objective, let’s consider the evidence.First let us consider what are cited to be his successes so far:His tax cutThe state of the economyAs I have said, and this applies to any President, and for that matter to Congress and even to the Federal Reserve:Government cannot effectively manage the economy. If government could effectively manage the economy there would never be a recession.Let me repeat that:If government could effectively manage the economy there would never be a recession—hence the government cannot effectively manage the economy.There are no “buts” here. Anything anyone says to the contrary is bloviating crap.Government can create the basic conditions that will allow an economy to flourish: by that I mean: the rule of law, property rights, basic infrastrucure, and an orderly society.When politicians say anything about the economy, they are talking out of their asses. They are idiots at best—and more likely, any politician who is talking about the ability of the government to manage the economy is lying.But we know what people say about politicians moving their lips.So Donald Trump cannot take credit for the economy. Nor can Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, or any other President.There are no “buts.” Nope. Talk to the hand.So what about Trump’s tax cut? What is it doing for the economy?Mostly it is allowing executives to buy back shares of their company’s stock—which primarily benefits those executives—because their bonuses are often tied to share price, and buying back shares tends to cause the share price to rise—but those tax breaks really do not seem to be benefiting anyone else very much. Maybe a little. But at what cost?It is clear that unless there are sharp increases in revenue, these tax cuts will result in huge deficits.Repeat after me: Supply side economics is bullshit. Supply side economics is voodoo economics.There are no “buts.” Nope. Talk to the hand.So on his tax cuts? Not a benefit.And we have run out of the “good stuff.”Now we look at the bad side of the ledger.Let us start with the fact that Don Trump is the most divisive President since James Buchanan, if not of all time.Let’s not mince words here: the people who believe that President Obama was divisive are people who believe that no minority person should be President. President Obama did nothing to offend anyone. If anyone was offended by President Obama, it was because they wanted to be offended.With Trump it is different.Trump makes fun of people. He refuses to distance himself from known hate groups. He equates legitimate protestors with murderers. He treats victims of sexual assault with extreme disrespect. He offered to pay the legal expenses of those who assaulted protesters at his rallies. He has baselessly accused his opponents of being violent, while himself threatening violence if his party does not win in the midterm elections.Trump is also causing immense chaos—without any purpose for doing so.He has repeatedly and publicly berated his Attorney General because Jeff Sessions has not shown Trump sufficient personal loyalty. Trump does not seem to grasp that the AG is not supposed to be personally loyal to the President. In that regard Trump may have even berated Sessions publicly in such a way that it could be construed as obstruction of justice.Trump has caused chaos with our NATO allies—and to what end? If he felt that our NATO allies were not paying enough of their GDP for defense, the way to do that through negotiation—not publicly weaken the alliance. Of course, there is the question of whether the Russians have compromising information on Trump and that the Russians are using Trump to weaken NATO.Trump has caused chaos in our trade relations. Perhaps he was able to extract a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, but he has started a fundamentally unwinnable trade war with China that is far more likely to result in a global recession than it is a new trade agreement with China that is more favorable to the United States.Trump is ripping asylum seeking families apart with no plan to reconnect parents and children.Trump is playing nice with dictators.Trump is turning a blind eye to Saudi Arabia’s murder of a journalist.And Trump has run the most chaotic and demoralized White House in memory. There are civil servants and cabinet members who are actively thwarting Trump’s incompetence, as one of them revealed in a New York Times op-ed.In short, there is so much wrong with Trump’s Presidency-regime, really—and nothing to recommend it.There is a reason why people who know are calling Trump the worst President in American history.They are calling him the worst President in American history because Trump is the worst President in American history.
If someone is not an American citizen but has a green card. Are they able to travel back to their home country or return back to America without a passport? Based on experience please, no opinions.?
As far as the US government is concerned, a US permanent resident with a valid green card does not need a passport to return to the US. See this Q&A from the US CBP:United States (U.S.) LPRs do not need a passport to enter the U.S.and see the carrier information guide (page 28):A Lawful Permanent Resident may travel to the United States without a passport with a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551).However, if you are traveling by airplane or another carrier, they might still require a passport or other travel document before letting you board.As for entering your “home country”, the documentary requirements depend on the rules of the particular country involved. However, if you are a national of that country, most countries would require their national travel back to their country with that country’s own passport. Some countries allow expired passports, and, if you make if to the country’s port of entry, you will probably be allowed in if you can prove that you are a national of that country, but airlines and other carriers are not likely to board you unless you have a document as required by that country.Note that US permanent residents (green card holders) can get a US “Re-entry Permit”, which is a passport-like travel document which can be used for international travel for green card holders who can’t or don’t want to get a passport from their country of nationality. See this brochure from USCIS:You may also want to get a reentry permit if you plan on traveling outside the United States and cannot or do not wish to get a passport from your home country. Many countries throughout the world may allow you to use a reentry permit much like you would use a passport—placing necessary visas and entry and exit stamps in the permit—so you may use it as your main travel document. Be sure to check with any country you plan to visit about specific requirements before you travel.However, to travel to a foreign country on this Re-entry Permit, you would still need a visa from the country you are going to visit, and if you are traveling back to your country of nationality, they are unlikely to issue a visa to their own national, so that still won’t help with getting to the country.
