What to do When ICE Comes

ICE

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Ok the pressure is on, for American families.  The pressure is undue and that is unfortunate and should not be happening.  In 1965, African American lawmakers and others fought to allow equal opportunities for immigrants.  The playing field had never been level as it relates to non European immigrants.  

 

However, if an ICE agent approaches you or come to your home follow protocol and I will list below the do’s and don’ts if you are approached.  

 

If you are approached by Law Enforcement:

  • Stay calm.  Don’t run, argue, resist, or obstruct the officer, even if you believe your rights are being violated.  Keep your hands where police can see them.  
  • Don't lie about your status or provide false documents.

 

Your Rights:
