Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a part of the United States Department of Homeland Security, and runs a nationwide enforcement initiative to identify, arrest and remove undocumented immigrants with a prior order of removal, deportation or exclusion. During the course of their raids, ICE teams often encounter people without prior deportation orders and without criminal records. ICE has maintained its right to arrest and deport these people as well. But ICE agents are not just sweeping up noncitizens they encounter in the process of seeking “fugitive aliens.”

This page provides an overview of the rights an immigrant (whether here ligally or not) or even a citizen may exercise if confronted by an immigration official. Feel free to distribute these flyers and webpages widely so immigrants will know how to act if they are confronted by the Immigration Service.
