whatamidoinghere is on a distinguished road

this is what I received from my legal..

The USCIS and any law enforcement officers have the right to ask you to present your registration document at any time. You should carry proof of your lawful status (such as your valid I-94 card, your green card, or your passport with I-551 stamp) with you at all times. If for any reason this is not possible, you should at least carry a copy of your registration documents.

CAUTION: Failure to carry proof of registration (such as your I-94 card or green card) is a criminal misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine not to exceed $100, imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, or both. In addition, if you willfully fail or refuse to apply for your registration document, you may be convicted of a misdemeanor that carries a fine of up to $1000, or imprisonment of up to six months, or both.

So it looks like we should atleast have a copy of the gc (shoved up our ...) and present it when asked by a law enforcement officer. Otherwise be ready to go to jail for 30 days.
