ICE is Here (on the street, in court, in a car)

What should I do?

What should I do? 

In New York, if you are the driver, you must pull over if you are stopped by any law enforcement officer, even if you don’t think you did anything wrong. 

If ICE is trying to pull you over and you do not stop, the ICE officers might use force or violence to stop your car, including pulling out guns. 

You may not know right away if ICE is pulling you over. ICE officers often use unmarked cars and wear plain clothes or vests that say “POLICE.” They often do not reveal that they are ICE until after they arrest someone. 

Before you say your name or anything else, ask the officers who they are and for their identification: 

  • “Are you the police?”

  • “Are you highway patrol?” 

  • “Are you immigration?” 

  • “Why am I being stopped?”
