Passengers, you have rights!

  • You have the right to remain silent.
  • When in doubt, do not answer questions about your citizenship or immigration status or sign any paperwork without the advice of a lawyer.
  • If you have valid immigration papers, you can provide them. Never provide false documents.
  • You can refuse a search of your belongings by saying "I do not consent to a search."
  • You have the right to record video of immigration agents as long as you don't interfere with them.

Tell your fellow passengers they have rights and should use them.
