Multilingual "red cards" to help immigrants assert their rights during ICE shakedowns

The Immigrant Resource Legal Center offers multilingual, printable templates for "red cards": bust cards adapted for use by immigrants being targeted by ICE squads.

Donald Trump launched his 2020 re-election campaign by promising a roundup of 11,000,000 people, even as he has handed millions to Beltway Bandits to build and operate concentration camps on US soil. These could not be more timely.

They're available in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Hmong, Spanish and Vietnamese. They read "I do not wish to speak to you, answer your questions, or sign or hand you any documents based on my 5th Amendment rights under the United States Constitution.I do not give you permission to enter my home based on my 4th Amendment rights under the United States Constitution unless you have a warrant to enter, signed by a judge or magistrate with my name on it that you slide under the door. I do not give you permission to search any of my belongings based on my 4th Amendment rights.These cards are available to citizens and non-citizens alike."

The the reverse they say:

You have constitutional rights

• Do not open the door if an immigration officer knocks on your door.

• Do not answer any questions if the immigration officer attempts to speak with you. You have the right to remain silent. You do not need to give your name to the immigration officer. If you are at work, ask the immigration officer if you are free to leave and if the officer says yes, leave. You have the right to speak with an attorney.

• Give this card to the immigration officer. Do not open the door.

The cards can be downloaded and printed at home, or ordered in lots of 250 from a union print shop.
