know your rights: Federal Immigration Enforcement

Know Your Rights 2019.jpg

We share the concerns of our community about the Trump Administration’s comments regarding possible U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) nationwide raids. Please know, we and New York City is here for you.

If you are approached by federal immigration enforcement agents, such as ICE, be aware that you have rights. It is extremely important that our communities know their rights if encountered by ICE. The NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs has prepared a one-pager that explains these rights, click here. The Immigrant Defense Project has been monitoring ICE arrests in the community, click here for their KYR information.
