This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as what your rights are when you are contacted by Immigration. There are great resources available to you to help you get a more in-depth understanding. Knowing your rights and obligations can keep you safe and protected- and could very definitely help you avoid being detained or deported.

Try the ACLU website, or the information provided by other great organizations, such as the National Immigration Law Center and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights Los Angeles (CHIRLA).
