What are My Non-Citizen Rights?

Both citizens and non-citizens are granted rights underneath the United States Constitution. The Fifth Amendment allows every person to remain silent and refuse to answer questions from police officers and government agents. The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable search and seizures, therefore limiting the government’s access to your home without your consent. The First Amendment protects your right to free speech, assembly, and to advocate for social, political, and economic change without the threat of punishment.

If you choose to enact your Fifth Amendment rights in the face of a police officer or other government agent, remain polite and calm, don’t provide false information, and don’t sign documents without speaking to an attorney first.

If you’re abused or harassed by a police officer or government agent, write down their badge number, name, and other information like witnesses’ names and telephone numbers. If you are injured, seek medical attention and document your injuries with photographs.

Is a Criminal Defense Lawyer Different than an Immigration Lawyer?

Traditionally immigration law and criminal defense has been treated as separate areas of the law, but over time, these practices have intermingled more and more. Your criminal defense lawyer must have a working knowledge of many immigration practices to be able to handle your case properly. The term “crimmigration” has been created to refer to crimes that have potential immigration consequences.
