Hello and welcome back. Please remember to use FOR GUILLERMO in the subject line and message box so that no one else grabs the question and I can become your personal immigration consultant.

As I explained last night, that designation will not be removed until you become a U.S. Citizen. To work, you will just show that card AND the green card. Both will allow you to work.

Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget that positive rating. Thank you!
