OPL Responds Logo

It is important to know your rights with recent reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) may be coming to the Bay Area soon. 

The library can help you get the information you need to protect yourself, your family, and your neighbors. Ask us! If we don’t know the answer, we’ll connect you to someone who does.

ICE is able to arrest people

ICE is able to arrest people who visit the public library? is the public library a safe place for immigrants?

Thank you,

All people in the United

All people in the United States, regardless of immigration status, have certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. The ILRC’s Red Cards help people assert their rights and defend themselves in many situations, such as when ICE agents go to a home.
