A: After getting your immigrant visas, but before using them to enter the United States, did you log onto the USCIS website and pay your USCIS immigrant fees? If you did not do this, the green cards will not be produced. You can pay the fees after the fact (after you entered), which should trigger production of the cards. https://my.uscis.gov/uscis-immigrant-fee

A: Are you referring to the packet provided you at the US Consulate with advice to provide it to BP upon entry to the USA?

If so, I suggest that you contact your local CBP office about bringing the packet to them
