Do not open the door. Ask the officer to slip the warrant underneath
the door. If you open the door and allow the official to come into the
house, this may be considered giving him/her “consent” to
enter. If s/he enters without a warrant, request the names
and badge numbers of the officers and say that you
did not “consent” to a search. Also, write down the
names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone who
witnessed the incident.
In some states, it is a minor
crime not to provide your
name when asked by a police
officer. While punishment
for these crimes is minor,
you still could be arrested for
not providing your name.
Remember that providing
your name has risks, and that
your name can be used to
start a deportation process.
1. MAKE A PLAN OF ACTION WITH
Talk with your co-workers to see if they are willing to
make a collective decision that everyone - regardless of their
immigration status - will remain silent and ask to speak with an
attorney in the event of a workplace raid.
Tell co-workers not to run and to remain calm if there is a raid.
If there is a union at your workplace, contact your union spokesperson
to find out more about preparing for a raid.

request to contact an attorney immediately. I am
also exercising my right to refuse to sign anything
until I consult with my attorney.
