Facilitating Legal Residence And Employment In The U.S.
The issuance of a permanent residence card (Form I-551, commonly called a green card) enables an alien national to live and work in the U.S. It also enables the possessor to travel abroad and return to the U.S. Once issued, a green card must be renewed every 10 years.
Issuance of green cards are at the discretion of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security. There are a number of reasons why USCIS can deny a green card or refuse to renew green card status.
