Know Your Rights

Helpful resources for understanding your rights when encountering federal immigration agents or law enforcement:

The ACLU, including the NH affiliate of the ACLU, has asked the Greyhound bus company to stop allowing U.S. Customs & Border Protection agents to board buses for random immigration inspections. Read the press release for more information.

Please also refer to the Department of Homeland Security webpage containing the agency's policy guidance for ICE and CBP enforcement actions in or near "protected areas".  The policy, which was updated in October 2021 and supersedes the agency's October 2011 "Sensitive Locations" policy, says that enforcement activities should not take place at schools, including post-secondary colleges and universities, except in very limited circumstances.  Additional information can be found in the FAQs posted on the ICE website.
