Know Your Rights
ICE Raids have been happening for a long time. How do community leaders, pastors and churches help our immigrant friends who are afraid in this time of heightened raids? We can help inform them about their rights if they are stopped by law enforcement. The National Immigration Law Center has provided a printable “Know Your Rights” card that can be distributed to community members so that they know what they can and should do if they are stopped and questioned by law enforcement.
If you want to learn more about what is happening across the country and how to respond, The National Immigration Law Center has also provided a webinar and power point slides to better inform community leaders.
If you are looking for the nearest current legal services to your community you may find this directory helpful in identifying people who can answer questions and get immigrants help now.
