Know Your Rights! Protect you and your family during immigration raids
Posted on: November 28, 2016
It is important for everyone to understand you do have rights when confronted or questioned by police or other officials. You have the right to remain silent, to request to speak to a lawyer, and to make a phone call if arrested. If the police or immigration come to your door, they must have a warrant and you have the right to not open the door until you see the warrant with your name on it. Read more about your rights here.
Attorney General Maura Healy has also set up a hotline that allows people to report incidents of vandalism, harassment, and intimidation directed at racial, ethnic, and religious minorities. If you feel your rights have been violated, call 1-800-994-3228 or file a civil rights complaint online.
