When detained by ICE, the first thing anyone should do is request a bond. If personally detained, ask the the ICE agents if you will be released or granted bond. If there is a minimal flight risk and no danger to the community, bond should be granted. Additionally, you have the right to remain silent. You do not have to speak to ICE agents, nor do you have to respond to their questions. Lastly, do not sign anything until speaking with a lawyer.
If your loved one has been picked up by ICE, and you wish to find out his or her location, you can put in his or her information into the Online Detainee Locator System at
