KNOW YOUR RIGHTS WITH ICE

Now, more than ever, it is important that all immigrants be careful when interacting with any government authority. Know your rights:

  • Never present yourself to USCIS
  • Do not open the door. If immigration agents (ICE) or police come to your house claiming to have a legal document with your name on it, do not open the door.
  • If ICE agents do not have a warrant signed by a judge, they cannot enter your home without permission. Ask them to slip the document under the door. Tell your children not to open the door.
  • Remain silent. You do not have to answer any questions.
  • Do not sign anything.
  • Ask to speak with an attorney.
  • Call Mark Diaz

If ICE agents approach you on the streets or in public:

  • Ask am I free to go? If they say yes: say “ I do not want to answer your questions” and walk away. If they say no: use your right to remain silent. Say “I want to use my right not to answer questions. I want to speak to a lawyer”
  • Do not lie or show false documents. Do not flee or resist arrest.

If you are being arrested by ICE you have the right to remain silent and the right to speak to a lawyer. You do not have to share any information about where you were born, your immigration status, or your criminal record. You do not have to give them your passport unless they have a warrant from a judge. Do not sign anything and always ask to speak to an attorney.

Federal Criminal Defense

Defended countless clients accused of federal crimes. As an experienced federal litigator, I know how to assemble an effective defense for high profile crimes.

Drug Possession

Because drug possession is a serious crime that can result in life-changing penalties, it is absolutely imperative to work with a Texas criminal defense lawyer who understands the law in this area.

White Collar Crimes

Because these types of cases are often subject to both state and federal prosecution, it is important to work with a lawyer who is comfortable defending a case at any level.

DWI Charges

A DWI Charge Can Put Your Life on Hold. A single arrest can seriously jeopardize your job, your freedom, and your reputation. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you can’t afford to delay your defense.
