Know Your Rights – Flyer & Booklet

Flyer for community members on rights during encounters with ICE in the community (2 pages, available in 16 languages)






See IDP’s 14-page booklet for more detailed information on ICE trends and your rights in English and Spanish.

When someone is detained by ICE, whether they can fight their case in front of an immigration judge or in another way depends on their past experience. This two-pager helps you understand what type of immigration case you could have and what your rights would be in the case of an ICE detention.

See our ICE raids toolkit for a comprehensive guide on ICE raids and strategies to fight back.

See ICEwatchan interactive map that details ICE’s deceptive and aggressive tactics with summaries of over 1400 raids.

Documenting ICE Raids:

In the past few years, as many people have become aware of ICE’s brutal enforcement tactics, and even more of us carry smartphones, videos of interactions with ICE have become much more frequent in the media.

  • Infographics: Know Your Rights Basics for Documenting ICE, How to Document ICE Raids, and Things Not to Forget While Documenting ICE. Available in both English and Spanish.

IDP/Newsweek Know Your Rights Videos
