Immigrants: Know Your Rights if ICE agents Arrive at Your Home

  • Keep your door closed in case ICE agents or the police come to your home. You do not have to let them enter unless they have a valid warrant to enter your home.
  • You have a right to see the warrant before they enter. Ask for the warrant to be slid under your door or window. Check it for accuracy.
  • You have the right to remain silent: say nothing about where you were born or how you entered the country; say that you want to speak to an attorney. Only give your full name to allow your family to locate you.
  • If you have valid immigration status documents, show them: Never show or carry false documents.
  • You have the right to an attorney but the government will not provide a free lawyer: If you are arrested or detained, you have the right to make a call to your family or your attorney.
  • Do not sign any document without consulting an attorney.
