Supporters of illegal immigration are working overtime on social media trying to get information out there on how those caught up in raids should respond. This is absolutely ridiculous. Agents are doing their jobs and following the law!
If Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents show up at the door, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) advises not opening it unless the agents can show a warrant signed by a judge.
“Ask to see it (through a window or slipped under the door,” the graphic, available in multiple languages, says.
ICE administrative warrants don’t allow agents to enter a home without the consent of the residents. Residents can ask through the door why the agents are there and request an interpreter if they need one.
If there is no warrant, ask the agents to leave information outside.
If the agents force their way into the home, “don’t resist. Tell everyone in the residence to remain silent,” the ACLU says.
If you are arrested “remain silent and do not sign anything until you speak to a lawyer,” the graphic said.
