After new Donald Trump's immigration decrees Many human rights organizations have announced the protection of those who are subject to the so-called presidential instructions.

Very often immigrants are unaware of their rights, therefore the organization decided to issue a special memo. She will help all visitors to protect themselves by complying with US law. Employees of the Immigrant Defense Project are constantly monitoring the arrests of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE).

Recall that the law allows federal immigration services to submit for deportation the following groups of immigrants:

• people without legal immigration status;
• legal immigrants (green card holders, refugees and people with a valid visa) who were convicted of committing crimes.

The priority group of persons to be deported, according to the Trump Administration, includes:

— people who have an open criminal case and/or have been convicted of committing crimes;

— people who have received a deportation order;

— those who illegally receive social benefits or distorted facts when filling out immigration documents or applications for benefits from the state;

- those who pose a threat to the public safety of the United States.

10 IMPORTANT advice from the Immigrant Protection Service

1. Action plan

In case of arrest, create a plan of action with your loved ones. Do not contact immigration services, do not apply for a change of immigration status or update a green card and do not travel outside the US until you consult a lawyer.

2. Do not break the law

Be law-abiding. Remember that the police share information and fingerprints with immigration services.

3. Meeting with an officer in the street

In public places, ICE officers arrest quickly. They may call you by name, ask you to confirm the name and delay you.

- Before you say your name or anything, ask - I HAVE THE RIGHT TO LEAVE?
- If they answer YES, say that you do not want to answer questions or say that you prefer not to talk now. And leave.
- If they answer NO. Use your right to remain silent. Say that you want to exercise the right to remain silent, and also that you want to talk to a lawyer.

- If ICE officers search you, tell them you do not consent to the search.

DO NOT TALK WRONG, Do not show fake documents. Do not run away or resist arrest.

— Do not answer questions about your immigration status or country of birth. ICE will use all information against you. Do not show any documents from other countries, such as: passports, consular papers, expired visas. If you are detained in court, ask to speak with a lawyer before you are taken away.

4. Be attentive to unwanted guests.

Be careful: ICE officers may pretend to be police officers who are investigating or want to discuss the theft. If ICE officers do not have a warrant signed by a judge, they do not have the right to enter your home without your permission or the permission of an adult tenant. If you open the door, it does not give them the right to enter without permission.

5. The officers came to your home

— It is important to find out which service they came to you from: ICE or DHS.

- Try not to show concern. Be polite. Do not lie. Say you don't want to talk right now. Politely ask to see the warrant signed by the judge, ask to slide the warrant under the door. If they don't have a warrant, don't let them in. If they are looking for someone else, ask them to leave you their contact information. You shouldn't tell the location of whoever they're looking for, but don't lie to the officers either.

In more detail about this case we We wrote earlier.

6. The officers were able to enter your home.

— If there are children or dependent residents in the house, tell the officers about it. Ask officers to leave the house unless they have a warrant signed by a judge. If they come inside without your permission, tell them that you do not give permission to be in the house. Ask them to leave.

7. Your actions during the search

- If they start searching, say that you do not give permission to search.

— If you are arrested, report any medical problems you have or need to make child care arrangements.

8. Rights of the arrested immigrant

You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to speak with a lawyer. DO NOT TALK WRONG. This will only make things worse. You don't have to say where you were born, what your immigration status is, or what offenses you have. Ask to meet with a lawyer—instead of answering questions.

8. Documents and Signatures

-You should not show officers your passport or consular documents unless they have a warrant from a judge. You are not required to sign anything.

10. Seek Legal Aid

— You can find non-governmental organizations that provide low-cost legal services on the website

— Immigration courts maintain lists of lawyers and organizations that provide free legal services:

- On the site There is a search in which you can enter your index and get a list of all legal services in your area.

— An immigration lawyer can be found through the American Immigration Lawyers Association's online directory,

— The national immigration project of the National Guild of Lawyers also has its own online tool for finding specialists: Learn more about your rights.
