11. my husband had a scary experience
he was in Caribou, Maine on business. He is from England but has lived here for 7 years and we've been married for 6. He has his permanent resident card but at that time didn't carry it for fear of losing it (it took an act of god and several thousand dollars to get). At the airport in Maine on his way back home he was asked if he was an American and he said " no, but I live in America" he was asked to show his card. He explained that he didn't carry it for fear of losing it and they immediately took him to a room with two armed guys and questioned him. They called INS to verify his status and warned him that he was breaking the law by not carrying his card and he could be jailed but they let him off with a warning. He was scared shit less but managed to get on the flight that was delayed in leaving because of him. This was in the US but he was told by the friends he was traveling with that they were very cautious up there because the 9-11 terrorist came that way.
