A “Know Your Rights” Refresher for Immigrants

The reminders include:

  • You have the right to remain silent. You may refuse to speak to immigration officers.
  • Do not open your door (ICE must have a warrant signed by a judge to enter).
  • You have the right to speak to a lawyer.
  • Before you sign anything, talk to a lawyer.
  • Always carry with you any valid immigration document you have.
  • If you are worried that ICE will arrest you, let the officer know if you have children.
  • Carry a “know-your-rights card” and show it if an immigration officer stops you.
