Immigration Officials Unveil Redesigned Green Card

KPCC News: It’s back to the future for the green card. "When I came to work in ’96, the green card was pink. Later on it turned into a creamy, white color and that’s the green card people are carrying today. Now it’s going to go back to being green," said Immigration Services Spokeswoman Sharon Rummery. The most important changes, she said, are the ones the agency imposed to thwart counterfeiters. Holograms, laser-engraved fingerprints, and high-resolution micro images make the card nearly impossible to copy or alter, Rummery said.
