Entering US with GC

I recently entered US with my GC and was surprised to find that GC holders were clubbed with visitor/h1 visa holders for the immigration interview. It wasn't the case last year at SFO. Has the rules changed since last year? Is it everywhere or only in SFO? I felt this was one of the perks of having GC and I had to wait in queue for an hour.

I know it is a first world problem but still it can save a lot of time at the port of entry.
Anyone observed similar behavior?

    The situation for green card holders is going to get more hostile. If you can apply for citizenship I would start the process.

      Why do you think it'll get hostile?

      I can start next year and I plan to do it as soon as I'm eligible. I don't disagree with the difficulty in getting citizenship comment.

    Not sure about sfo but I thought most airports have citizens and green cards in the same line?

      Yeah. That's what I thought but in SF, They had visitors and GC holders in the same line.

    Depends entry/airport. GC has been in separate line.

    Spending the money on global entry is definitely worth it.
