The frustration in the EB3 community is very intense. I hate to see this become a feud between EB3 and EB2. We all are in this together. Please stop hating. Just 1 post brought my reputation down from 4 greens to 2 reds.

No I did not. Because my attorney did not ask me to do so. But, after I got my GC, they emailed me some instructions on what to do and what not to do. In that list they had this instruction to carry my GC with me all the time in BOLD.

So I got concerned and posted this which has resulted in a lot of hating and loathing. I am not understanding why is this my fault.

Per law, all H1B papers (atleast LCA) should be kept where non-immigrants work. There is no clear law for non-immigrants to hold passport/visa/EAD always with them. They recommend always to keep with you. Further, consulates( when they issue visa), won't give any specific instruction to non-immigrants to carry passport/visa always with them. However, for immigrants (LPR) it is very clear that one MUST hold orginal GC always with them. It is rule/law. The welcome notice clearly shows. Although, many dont practice, it is still a rule. I heared a story when a guy pulled off he got big trouble, when he claimed he is a LPR; and does not carry the GC.

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.

I never carried GC with me unless I am out of this country. Why would someone ask for a GC? How many illegals are in this country? They don't care...

I carry a copy of the permanent resident card. I hope this is sufficient as a proof of registration. May be the attorneys in the forum can give their opinion.

I am under the impression that atleast in Illinois, the local law enforcement (police) CANNOT ask for the legal status or check any documents if it is a routine traffic stop or just pull you over and then ask for the documents. I know for a fact as this had become a big issue at one of the Chicago's northern suburbs recently and was in news for quite some time. There were two sections of citizens who wanted police to check and others (ACLU) argued that legal status was a federal jurisdiction and the local law enforcement were not authorized to check and violated the rights.

I think only ICE or CBP can ask that and how many of them are around in cities/ towns far away from the border?

I assume the same is true with other Police Depts.
