As news broke of potential nationwide Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids this weekend, Rep. Salud Carbajal encouraged his constituents and people across the nation to know their rights at a press conference today.

“What I will tell my community, my district and communities across the country is: Know your rights. Conozcan sus derechos,” Said Rep. Carbajal. “No tienen que abrir la puerta sin [una] orden judicial. No tienen que firmar ningún documento. Tienen el derecho de estar en silencio y hablar con un abogado. Acuérdense que tienen derechos, y este es tiempo de que cuiden a sus familias y que tengan un plan.”

[Translation: “You don’t have to open the door without a warrant. You don’t have to sign any document. You have the right to remain silent and speak with a lawyer. Remember that you have rights, and now is the time to take care of your families and have a plan.”]
