The Permanent Residence Card in the United States, popularly known as Green Card (in Spanish: Green Card) is an identity document for permanent residents in the United States who do not have US citizenship. The holders of this card have the right to reside and work in the country. However, they must maintain the status of a resident in the United States although it can be withdrawn if it is proven that they have committed certain crimes. The name Green Card is due to the color of a similar document introduced at the end of the Second World War. In 1977 the current document was adopted, having been printed in various colors. In 2006 the color of the card turned between white and yellow with a green stripe in the background. The card includes the name of the holder and a photograph, as well as personal information.
