Green Cards Once Again Green

Here’s a post from The Corner’s resident immigration guy:

It’s Finally Green Again! [Mark Krikorian]
Here’s the redesigned look of the green card:

It hasn’t actually been green for decades, in part, I think, because of bureaucratic stubbornness — they weren’t going to give in to some silly nickname. They seem to have thought better of that, which is good.

I’m genuinely curious: why is this good? In fact, why does anyone care one way or the other if a green card is actually green? Has this been some pet peeve of the anti-immigration community for years? Inquiring minds want to know.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
