The check points I'm talking about are (NOT International border crossing s) these are inspection blocks set up by cbp n border patrol 60 miles north of the mexican/American border..I live in south texas, and i need to cross the the Check point to get to Austin or Houston ..can I just show them my 821D recipt to cross or will I get arrested?? .....P.S. since I am in process do I have some kind of status to keep me from getting delorted/ or arrested in united states soil ...I'm a strong candidate with clean record
You should be okay with your receipt, but if you can wait until your application is approved, this would be better.

I agree with both of my colleagues. While the receipt notice doesn't technically keep you safe, it could help if you are stopped and questioned. It's better for you to wait for a result. The officers who do the inspecting do not necessarily have the information about your strong application and clean record handy.
