How Trump's order affected green card holders

An immigration lawyer on Tuesday explained on Mornings@ANC how U.S. green card holders were affected by President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration.

Atty. Ryan Barshop said green card holders being blocked at airports due to Trump's order was a "mistake", but has since been resolved.

"It's simple. A lot of people didn't read the text, even the Border Control. Many of the Border Control agents did not read the text," he said.

He explained, nevertheless, that green card holders who stay too long outside the United States are presumed to have waived their green card and would be subject to "secondary inspection at the border." 

However, they may file for returning resident visa again in U.S. embassies or be repetitioned.
