If ICE agents show up at your door:
1. Don't open the door, but be calm. You have rights.
2. Ask what they are there for (and ask for an interpreter if you need one).
3. If they ask to enter, ask if they have a warrant signed by a judge, and if so, ask to see it (through a window or slipped under the door).
4. If they do NOT have a warrant signed by a judge, you may refuse to let them in. Ask them to leave any information at your door.
5. If they force their way in, don't resist. Tell everyone in the residence to remain silent.
6. If you are arrested, remain silent and do not sign anything until you speak to a lawyer.
If ICE agents come to your place of work:
1. Ask if you are free to leave. If so, you may calmly walk out.
2. You have the right to refuse consent to a search. Say out loud that you do not consent to a search of your belongings.
3. You have the right to remain silent. You do not have to discuss your immigration status with anyone, such as about where you were born, whether you are a citizen, or how you entered the country.
3 (continued). But if you have valid immigration documents, you should show them. Never provide fake documents.
4. If you're arrested, say that you wish to remain silent until speaking with a lawyer.
5. You have the right to record your interaction with immigration agents as long as you do not interfere.
