Everyone has certain basic rights, no matter who is president

Because Donald Trump has made many anti-immigrant statements, ICE and other law enforcement officers may think they can get away with violating your rights. Sometimes ICE officers lie to people in order to get them to open their doors or sign away their rights. If ICE detains you or you are concerned that they will conduct raids in your area, this is what you can do:

Create a safety plan.

Memorize the phone number of a friend, family member, or attorney that you can call if you are arrested.
If you take care of children or other people, make a plan to have them taken care of if you are detained.
Keep important documents such as birth certificates and immigration documents in a safe place where a friend or family member can access them if necessary.
Make sure your loved ones know how to find you if you are detained by ICE. They can use ICE’s online detainee locator to find an adult who is in immigration custody. Or they can call the local ICE office. Make sure they have your alien registration number written down, if you have one.
You can call the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) hotline number at 240-314-1500 or 1-800-898-7180 (toll-free) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get information on your case’s status.

Report and document raids and arrests.

If it is possible and safe for you to do so, take photos and videos of the raid or arrest. Also take notes on what happened.
Call United We Dream’s hotline to report a raid: 1-844-363-1423.
Send text messages to 877877.
