Rights When Marches
Immigrant Marches / Marchas de los Inmigrantes
de la Union Americana de Libertades Civiles
Immigrants and their supporters are participating in marches all
over the country to protest proposed national legislation and to seek
justice for immigrants. The materials available here provide important
information about the rights and risks involved for anyone who is
planning to participate in the ongoing marches.
If government agents question you, it is important to understand
your rights. You should be careful in the way you speak when
approached by the police, FBI, or INS. If you give answers, they can
be used against you in a criminal, immigration, or civil case.
The ACLU's publications below provide effective and useful guidance
in several languages for many situations. The brochures apprise you of
your legal rights, recommend how to preserve those rights, and provide
guidance on how to interact with officials.
