    What do immigrants and others impacted need to know?
    •    Everyone has basic rights, no matter who is president.

    •    Do not open your door unless the officer shows you a warrant signed by a judge.
    •    You have the right to speak to a lawyer. Before you sign anything, talk to a lawyer.
    •    Let ICE officers know if you have children, health problems, or other factors that may cause you or your family to suffer if you are arrested.

    A Note on Undocumented Workers

    Most federal and state laws providing worker protections apply to all workers - undocumented as well as documented workers. In most cases, undocumented workers have the right to workers' compensation, safe workplaces, union membership, prompt payment of wages, and overtime pay. However, unemployment benefits and many forms of public assistance are not available to undocumented workers.
