The National Immigration Law Center reminds us that everyone has certain basic rights no matter what administration presides. Visit their site or click here for more information.

Helpful App: An app has been developed to allow people who are detained to notify family and friends to care for children, call a lawyer.  Click here: https://notifica.us.

This app should only be used if you are at home.  We do not recommend that you reach for your phone if you are on the street or in a car when a member of ICE or a police officer approaches you.
