Green Cards Officially Green Again and Apparently Better Than Ever, Feds Say
The original permanent-resident card was green, but over the years, the card has been many colors, including white, beige, and pink.
Check out all the new bells-and-whistles, which the CIS announced today, after the jump.
--Secure optical media to store biometrics for rapid and reliable identification of the card-holder.
--Holographic images, laser-engraved fingerprints, and high-resolution micro-images to make the card nearly impossible to reproduce.
--Tighter integration of the card design with personalized elements to make it harder to alter the card if it's stolen.
--Radio-frequency-Identification capability so scary Customs and Border Protection officers can read the card from a distance and compare it immediately to file data.
--A preprinted return address to enable the easy return of a lost card.
