comment Can I cross the US/Canadian border with a copy of my US passport?
"The return to the USA you need your passport or enhanced drivers license." Yes, but if you don't, a U.S. citizen cannot be denied entry to the U.S. under any circumstances anyway, as long as they can sufficiently prove their U.S. citizenship.

comment Can I cross the US/Canadian border with a copy of my US passport?
"To enter Canada from the USA as a US citizen you need to produce the actual passport or an enhanced drivers license or a standard drivers license plus birth certificate." Not true. To enter Canada it is sufficient to produce sufficient documentation to prove the person's identity and U.S. citizenship, which does not need to be those things.

@user29972: Since you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen and you entered the U.S. legally, you can do Adjustment of Status to get a green card.

@KateGregory: For the with-legal-presence-document type of driver's license, Colorado apparently does require an unexpired visa: colorado.gov/pacific/sites/default/files/DR2300B.pdf

comment Can US citizens go to Cuba freely and vice versa after the recent diplomatic relation restoration?
@jpatokal: You don't have to "get" anything at all. The general license applies automatically to all people who qualify; that's why it's "general".

Did you lose a Certificate of Citizenship or Certificate of Naturalization? Did you ever have a U.S. passport?

comment Lost US citizenship certificate, have no U.S. passport - can I travel internationally?
"There is also a risk that the border officer might be unable to establish that your certificate is genuine, in which case you might be refused entry " Once you produce a certificate that is a prima facie proof of citizenship, the presumption is that you are a citizen unless proven otherwise, and the burden of proof shifts to the government to prove that it is not genuine. Also, someone claiming to be a U.S. citizen or U.S. nationals is entitled to a hearing before an immigration judge before being deported.

comment Does my international travel insurance still need creditable coverage after obamacare
besides worrying about "creditable coverage", a more important issue is that you will be subject to the penalty for not having insurance if the insurance you get doesn't meet the ACA requirements

comment Traveling inside the U.S. with a tourist visa from 3 years ago
@cpast: I didn't say anything about indefinite stay. I said the visa validity has nothing to do with stay. Even if it is as you say, he could have done or is in the process of doing an Extension of Status, Change of Status, Adjustment of Status, or Asylum application, in which case he could still be legal but it would not show anything on his passport. My point is, you can't tell from looking at a passport, especially by someone not well versed in immigration law.

comment Dual citizenship
@AleksG: Matthew Herbst is right. The U.S. has no exit checks in any border crossing, whether by land, sea, or air. The TSA checks to make sure you are not bringing any explosives, etc. and you are who you say you are for the security of the flight (whether domestic or international); they have no jurisdiction do deal with anything immigration related. Nobody receives an outbound stamp.

comment Leaving the country when applied for EAD
For #1, I think they meant is whether appearing in interviews a permitted activity on L2 without an EAD; like how employment is not permitted for people in certain statuses, and how studying is not permitted for people in certain statuses.
