ICE is Here

They are fingerprinting and questioning others in the home. What do I do?

Your rights: When ICE agents make an arrest, they are likely to ask any witnesses for fingerprints and for their immigration documents. Witnesses of ICE arrests have the right to say no.

What to do:

  • You should say “No, I do not consent to having you take my fingerprints” or “No, I do not consent to giving you my documents.

  • Continue to say this even if they insist many times. If ICE handcuffs or restrains witnesses in order to obtain fingerprints or documents, ask “Am I under arrest?”

  • You should not physically resist, but instead continue to say “I do not consent to fingerprinting. I do not consent to giving you documents.”
