Last month, I provided information on how to protect yourself and your loved ones in the event of a raid. This time, I am providing expanded tips on how to react if immigration officers come knocking at your home, your job or even in public.
Given today's anti-immigration political climate, it is important to be informed and know your rights. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has expanded powers to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. Although they don't have the manpower to actually arrest, detain and deport every single undocumented immigrant living in the U.S., the reality is that many have been detained and deported in numerous places.
In order to educate and help you, below you can find flyers describing your rights in the event of a confrontation with immigration, depending on where you are located.
