If they say they will give GC tomorrow, i am ready to give finger prints daily also


I think its views like this which have made GC and Citizenship such seemingly precious commodities that the grantors of such privileges (USCIS/ DHS etc) have come to believe that they can do whatever they want (delays/ arbitrary rules etc) and still there will be enough willing applicants in line for them to choose from to grant these "precious" privileges.........

I have had a GC now for 2 years - i dont think its made any material change in my life....i still work for the same company i used to before i got GC.........i was never discriminated against in the workplace prior to GC so nothing changed post GC either........the only advantage to me has been that I can visit Canada (which i have to often for business) without a visa.........
If a person has to wait for several years the story can be different.

We all want that greencards be given without much wait, (like in your your case) so that people can focus on their profession and personal lives and live it better. While it may not bring any material change, as you still need to do a job and bring food to the table, it certainly gives some peace of mind and the ability to explore and try new possibilities in career. H1 and L1s are very prohibitive and the temporary nature of the visa makes a person feel very uncertain, fearful and tied.

for my wife they just took one single scan of one hand,when I asked the POE CBP office why? he said thats all the system asked to take.

My take is we still owe allegiance to a foreign passport so we should not be too touchy about extra security arrangement like FP scans
FP for returning permenent Residents is effective from Jan-18 of this year.

did you wait in the US citizens/LPR line or were you directed to the Visitors line at JFK POE?

It was my first return to US after getting the greencard last year July. Even after getting GC, I felt like in H1B.

Default Green card

I did stand on LPR line. For citizens, a separate line. One guy announced, 'people with small plastic card stand on that line.'
The person took finger print, photograph and also asked me what is my profession and what I am doing. Enquired about my visit. I told him that I did visit my relatives. It is a 2 week visit. One guy before me (look like middle east) came with me by Kuwait Airways, they interviewd him for 5 minutes and they took him inside for another inspection/interview. I did overheard saying he is going to Chicago. He is also a GC holder around 50 years old.
I am surprised, usually these questions asked for H1B people. I thought no questions for GC people.

i think in the long term, there will be 3 queues now - one for US citizens, one for LPR's and one for visitors.
this probably hasn't been implemented at all the POE's so i guess they're asking the LPR's to join the visitor's line.
