What To Do If ICE Agents Show Up At Your Door

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 26-Jan-2018

We care about all our clients, and we want to pass on this critical information from the ACLU about what to do if ICE comes to your door. Please read this, and remember to call us if you need help. We can help you find the right attorney.

If ICE Agents Show Up At Your Door:

  • Don’t open the door, but be calm. You have rights.
  • Ask what they are they are there for (and ask for an interpreter if you need one).
  • If they ask to enter, ask if they have a warrant signed by a judge* and if so, ask to see it (through a window or slipped under a door).
  • If they do NOT have a warrant signed by a judge*, you may refuse to let them in. Ask them to leave any information at your door.
  • If they force their way in, don’t resist. Tell everyone in the residence to remain silent.
  • If you are arrested, remain silent and do not sign anything until you speak to a lawyer.

*An ICE administrative warrant (form I-200, I-205) does not allow them to enter your house without your consent.


Si agentes del ICE llegan a tu puerta:

  • No abras la puerta, pero manten la calma. Tú tienes derechos.
  • Pregunta para que estan ahí (y solicita un interprete si necesitas uno)
  • Si ellos piden entrar a tu casa, pregúntales si tienen una orden firmada por un juez* y si la tienen, diles que te la muestren (por la ventana o que la pasen por debajo de la puerta)
  • Si ellos NO tienen una orden firmada por un juez*, puedes negarte a dejarlos entrar. Pídeles que dejen cualquier información en tu puerta.
  • Si entran a la fureza, no te resistas. Dile a todos los que estén en la casa que permanezcan el silencio.
  • Si eres arrestado, permanece en eilencio y no firmes nada hasta que hables con un abogado.

*Una orden administrative del ICE (forma I-200, I-205) no les de autorizacion para entrar a tu casa sin consentimiento.
