You have the right to remain silent. You may refuse to speak to immigration officers.

  • Don’t answer any questions. You may also say that you want to remain silent.
  • Don’t say anything about where you were born or how you entered the U.S.

Carry a know-your-rights card and show it if an immigration officer stops you.

  • The card (scroll down to see the card) explains that you will remain silent and that you wish to speak with an attorney.
  • To print the above card, click on the card’s image, then press Ctrl-P on your keyboard.

Do not open your door.

  • To be allowed to enter your home, ICE must have a warrant signed by a judge. Do not open your door unless an ICE agent shows you a warrant. (They almost never have one.) If an ICE agent wants to show you a warrant, they can hold it against a window or slide it under the door. To be valid, the warrant must have your correct name and address on it.
  • You do not need to open the door to talk with an ICE agent. Once you open the door, it is much harder to refuse to answer questions.

You have the right to speak to a lawyer.

  • You can simply say, “I need to speak to my attorney.”
  • You may have your lawyer with you if ICE or other law enforcement questions you.

Before you sign anything, talk to a lawyer.

  • ICE may try to get you to sign away your right to see a lawyer or a judge. Be sure you understand what a document actually says before you sign it.

Always carry with you any valid immigration document you have.

  • For example, if you have a valid work permit or green card, be sure to have it with you in case you need to show it for identification purposes.
  • Do not carry papers from another country with you, such as a foreign passport. Such papers could be used against you in the deportation process.

If you are worried ICE will arrest you, let the officer know if you have children.

  • If you are the parent or primary caregiver of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is under age 18, ICE may “exercise discretion” and let you go.
