Q: Can we move to USA in October/2021 with no in and outs in 12 month period?

We -as a family of four- received our greencards last year. When we entered to USA in October/2019, entry-port policeman told us to move to USA within 12 months.

We can't move right now due to pandemic but We will come in USA in October/2020 for just 14 days. Then we will exit USA.
