Know Your Rights

Know Your Rights

John Jay has compiled information from trusted sources that may be helpful to students.

Immigrant Legal Research Center (ILRC)
All people in the United States, regardless of immigration status, have certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. Red Cards are designed by the Immigrant Legal Research Center (ILRC) to help people assert their rights and defend themselves in many situations, such as when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents go to a home. For more information from ILRC on red cards and how to use them, please visit: https://www.ilrc.org/red-cards

Immigrant Defense Project
The Immigrant Defense Project has prepared a flyer for community members designed to provide information that might be helpful to individuals who may come into contact with ICE agents.  The Immigrant Defense Project ‘Know Your Rights’ poster is available at: https://www.immigrantdefenseproject.org/ice-home-and-community-arrests/
