Everyone inside the U.S. has certain legal rights, regardless of your immigration status:
- The right to remain silent if you are detained or questioned by law enforcement.
- The right to speak to an attorney before answering any questions.
- The right to refuse to sign any documents.
- The right to refuse consent to be searched. You do not have to open your door to the police or immigration agents unless they have a warrant signed by a judge with your correct name and address.
