Greetings, Would you please tell me what does “After The Green Card Return Home” mean? “The green card the green card. The …. Without it he couldn’t leave. To leave he wanted a green card. This was the absurdity. How he desired the triumphant After The Green Card Return Home, thirsted for it- to be able to buy a ticket with the air of someone who could return if he wished, or not, if he didn’t wish….” Is it a motto, or a famous common phrase? as it is written with capital letters. It's part of Inheritance of Loss, a novel by Kiran Dessay. Thank you.
