Getting a visit from Immigation and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents at your workplace can be an intimidating and stressful situation. As an immigrant myself, I totally understand the anxiety you must be feeling. But try to stay calm and know your rights. There are things you can do to prepare yourself and protect your coworkers.
First off, don’t panic! ICE needs a warrant or your permission to enter non-public areas at your workplace. They are allowed to knock on the door, but you don’t have to let them in if they don’t have a warrant.
It’s a good idea for your office to have a plan ready in case ICE shows up. Assign someone to be the point person who will handle the situation and communicate with ICE agents. Make sure all employees know who this is and what to do if agents arrive.
The point person should ask to see the warrant and confirm it is signed by a judge. They can also ask for the agent’s credentials, name, and phone number. All of this information should be written down.
If the agents don’t have a warrant, the point person can refuse them entry to private areas. ICE isn’t allowed to search desks, lockers, breakrooms, etc without permission or a warrant.
Both documented and undocumented immigrants have the right to remain silent when questioned by immigration agents. You don’t have to tell them where you were born, how you entered the U.S. or anything else. Say that you want to exercise your right to remain silent.
ICE may threaten you with arrest, but know that they can’t arrest you simply for remaining silent. Don’t let them intimidate you into answering questions without a lawyer present.
ICE agents may try to get you to sign papers consenting to a search or agreeing to voluntary departure. Never sign anything without talking to a lawyer first, even if they pressure you or say it will help your case.
Signing away your rights could lead to detention or deportation. You have the right to speak with a lawyer before signing any documents.
It’s perfectly legal to record video or audio of your interactions with ICE agents, as long as they are aware they are being recorded. This can protect you by having evidence of what was said and any violations of your rights.
Let the agents know you are recording them and ask them to confirm they consent to being recorded. If they refuse, stop recording but take detailed notes of what is said and done.
If you already have an immigration lawyer, call them immediately when ICE shows up. Your lawyer can talk to the agents on your behalf and ensure your rights are protected.
If you don’t have a lawyer, say that you want to speak with one. ICE has to allow you to contact a lawyer, although they don’t have to wait for the lawyer to arrive before questioning you.
Get in touch with local non-profit legal aid organizations that may be able to provide free or low-cost legal help. Here are some options:
If ICE agents violate your rights or use excessive force, report it! This allows the agencies to investigate and hold agents accountable for misconduct.
You can file complaints with agencies like the DOJ Civil Rights Division, DHS Office of Inspector General, and ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations.
Also report violations to advocacy groups like the ACLU which may be able to take legal action. The more violations are reported, the more pressure there is for reform.
In some cases ICE may detain you, but you still have rights even if arrested. Here’s what too expect:
Being detained doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be deported. Talk to a lawyer about possible defenses like asylum, cancellation of removal, and adjustment of status.
The more employees know their rights, the less power ICE has to take advantage. Share this information with coworkers so they can prepare too.
Hang posters from the ACLU and other groups around the office explaining rights when dealing with ICE. Have training sessions on workplace rights.
The more you learn, the better prepared you’ll be if agents show up. But also know that thousands face this situation and there are people ready to help. Stay calm, don’t panic, and call for help. We’re all in this together.
