Know Your Rights - Legal Resources

Para la versión en español, haga un clic aquí.

With growing concerns over the future of immigrant rights in 2017, El Pueblo has compiled an up-to-date list of information on how to protect yourself in a raid, as well as links to trusted legal advice to consult and plan ahead.  Please visit this page for regular updates.

NOTE: These links are NOT to act as a replacement for legal consultation, only to help in preparing for incidents in which detention or deportation are possible.

 

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS DURING A RAID

1.  You have the right to refuse opening the door and ask for an arrest warrant.

2.  You have the right to remain silent and cannot be punished for refusing to answer  questions.  If you wish to remain silent, tell the officer outloud.

3.  Do not sign any document.

4.  Prepare a plan with simple instructions for yourself and your family in case of a raid.

5.  The exact location of a raid is irrelevant; you always have rights and can fight a deportation case.
