Know your rights! 

Immigrants have rights too

You have the right to remain silent. You do not have to answer questions about where you were born, whether you’re a US citizen, or how you entered the country. If stopped on the street, you can assert these rights. (Different rules apply at international borders and airports. Different rules also apply if you hold a non-immigrant visa.)

If you’re not a US citizen and an immigration agent requests your immigration papers, you must show them. If you’re over 18, always carry your immigration documents with you. If you don’t have immigration papers, say you want to remain silent.

Do not lie about your citizenship status or provide fake documents.

If ICE agents come to your door, you do not have to let them in. Ask to see a warrant. The warrant must be issued by a court and signed by a judge.

If ICE agents or other law enforcement officers stop you while you are driving, you must show your license and registration. You do not have to answer questions about your immigrant status.
