Do not open the door.

You are not legally required to let them in unless they have a warrant.

Ask why they are there.

If you don’t speak English, you have the right to an interpreter.

If they want to enter, ask to see a warrant.

There are two kinds of warrants: search and arrest.

Ask the officer to slip the warrant under the door or hold it up to the window, so you can inspect it.

They might show administrative forms (I-200 and I-205). But if they don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, you may refuse entry.

Check for signature by judge.

Even if officers have a warrant and you have to let them in, you have the right to remain silent.

Say: “I plead the Fifth Amendment and choose to remain silent.”

If they force their way inside, don’t resist.

Remain calm, but don’t share any information.

If you’re arrested, remain silent.

You’re entitled to speak to a lawyer before cooperating and most importantly, keep calm because YOU HAVE RIGHTS, EXERCISE THEM.
