Know Your Rights

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 DHS officers. If you give answers, they can be used against you in a criminal, immigration, or civil case.

The ACLU's Know Your Rights brochure provides effective and useful guidance in a user-friendly question and answer format. The brochure apprises you of your legal rights, recommends how to preserve those rights, and provides guidance on how to interact with officials.
