new photo ID card for applicants waiting for US green card

according to Daily News U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has released a new photo ID card which combines Employment Authorization Document and Advanced Parole travel document. The new photo ID card that includes a fingerprint is available only for applicants who have filed adjustment of status application, paid $1070 and are awaiting decision for granting permanent resident status. The new ID card does not guarantee reentry to the US. Immigration lawyers criticize the new idea and say that USCIS should rather focus on clearing backlogs than issuing new photo ID cards to applicants with cases pending for years.
