Should I put my visa status in my resume if I already have green card or citizenship?

If you already have the green card or citizenship, I would recommend to put it in your resume. It will improve your chance of being hired.
The beginning of your resume should focus on your best attributes, not your citizenship. Therefore, I recommend that you include citizenship/visa information at the bottom of your resume. Something like:
Visa Status: US Green Card Holder
Visa Status: EAD Card Holder (no visa sponsorship required)
Citizenship: US Citizen

So, if you are a H1B holder, I don't think it is a good idea to put visa status go on resume.

Highly recommend to put Green Card or Citizenship status on the resume, especially these days, lot of companies are NOT looking for H1B sponsorship.

The other thing I should mention, include green card status in your resume not only increases your chance of getting potential interviews, but also boosts your confidence as you have no legal status issues to worry about.
