USCIS Wins “International Innovation Award” for Redesigned Green Card

In May, 2010, USCIS began issuing redesigned Green Cards in a newer, more secure format.

This past week, USCIS won the ACT Canada “International Innovation Award” for its “application of secure innovations to the U.S. Green Card’s structure and its data and visual security features.”

This award recognizes our efforts to increase document security and prevent fraud and identity theft to protect those that we serve. We continue to look for ways to improve the integrity and security of our documents and the systems with which we serve our customers.

This is a very good initiative. It will protect those who are legal in the country and add an element to the security of the national territory.

Congratulations to USCIS for this award. Fraud and ID theft has stopped increasing... We care less and less about privacy (see how we expose our lives with Facebook and twitter). So, it's vital that someone cares about these issues!

Fraud is a problem in this modern world. I agree. It is sadly true. But, there is a down side to updating green cards. My wife is Japanese. I am American. She has been living as my wife in the US since 1980. We have enjoyed living in the US and have never had any problems. We pay our taxes, own a house, contribute to the community, and more. But, now in our mature years we are being put through a bureaucratic maze. My wife's new green card is not being issued because the government can't manage to get good finger prints from her. So, they now insist on a background check. They set deadlines, and although they give some reasonable ways to postpone these deadlines, it is difficult for us. We have planned to travel and enjoy our lives, but instead we are stuck in a maze of bureaucratic deadlines and requests. Again, I am not saying the government doesn't need to secure America from fraud. But, this sometimes has a down side that affects people like us.

My husband to be was born in Jamaica. He came here on a work visa and is no longer working for the employer. He has family here and they have provided us with a home. I am a U.S. citizen, and was born here. I have stable employment. We wish to be married immediately. Can he marry before getting his green card. What steps do we now take?

My son's wife is from Vietnam. She got her green card in 2011 (not sure of the date). She decided she wants a divorce. She works at a mid size USA company who happens to have factories in Vietnam. Can she stay in the USA on her green card if she gets divorced before the 3 year of the initial green card? Can her employer sponsor her since she is working here in the USA?
