Equal Rights Under the United States Constitution
Due to misconceptions and misguided assumptions, many people think that undocumented immigrants do not have rights or protections under the law. This could not be further from the truth. The United States Constitution extends legal protections to all individuals residing within the borders of the U.S., which includes undocumented immigrants.
Your rights can include the following:
- Protection from unreasonable search and seizure
- Protection from self-incrimination
- The right to remain silent and the right to retain legal counsel
- The right to defend yourself from deportation
- Employment rights, including protection from discrimination
If your rights have been violated during a confrontation with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, you must speak with a Waterbury immigration attorney from our firm. We believe that there is nothing that can excuse behavior which infringes upon your rights. If law enforcement arrested you without a valid warrant or if you have been threatened in any way, you could be facing deportation. As a result of illegal tactics, countless individuals have suffered the consequences and have been forced apart from their families and jobs.
