Green Card

A Permanent Resident Card, also known as a "Green Card" is issued by the United States to resident aliens who have met the conditions and been granted permanent resident status in the U.S.

The term "green card" comes from the color of the original cards that were issued.  The green card was (and still is) a coveted item for a non-U.S. Citizen to possess.  Although the resident alien need not carry a valid card on his or her person, he or she must have ready access to the card and be able to present it upon demand by proper authorities.

Many countries are beginning to require that a national identification card be issued to all of their citizens for easy proof of citizenship.  The issuance of such a national ID card has been resisted in the United States over privacy fears.  At the present time, the most often used form of identification carried by U.S. Citizens is their State issued drivers license.  Of course, these licenses offer no proof of U.S. citizenship and are easily obtained by illegal aliens.
