Question becomes, "will green card holders from friendly countries
also have to go to an embassy and be screened prior to returning
to US?" If so, what's the likely outcome of such screening?
What's the criteria that each embassy will use while screening?

Not being argumentative but where did you get those numbers? (109 and 325,000)
I have tried to locate these specifics but Google beat me down wading through all the hysteria. I'm sure there has to be some record or tally of what is happening.
Thanks in advance.

"It will bar green card holders," acting DHS spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told Reuters
January 29, 2017
For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
WASHINGTON – In applying the provisions of the president's executive order, I hereby deem the entry of lawful permanent residents to be in the national interest.
Accordingly, absent the receipt of significant derogatory information indicating a serious threat to public safety and welfare, lawful permanent resident status will be a dispositive factor in our case-by-case determinations.

Which is exactly how it was worded in Trump's executive order.
The order gave DHS the authority to review on a case-by-case basis and to authorize admittance when in the national interest.
People were freaking out over nothing.

It's assumed that green card holders from the 7 "target countries"
must be screened or denied boarding, based on vague media reports.
