I am happy to help you but please a little further. You said you have a green card but then you mentioned applying for US citizenship. Are you a citizenship or a green card holder?

What is your specific question? Thanks !

I applied for us citizenship under N400 and N426 as I was in military during an hostility.......I have a forever green card but left for canada. I am now in the states and would like to know if I can work......was out of the states for over a year. I don’t need a green card to apply for citizenship but can I work
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 6 months ago

This is where your question is confusing. Was your US citizenship ever approved?

When you entered the US recently, did you show your green card or did you enter as a visitor?
