If the officer requests any sort of documentation such as license and registration through a highway patrol or immigration papers through an immigration officer, you must obey and present the respective documentation. On a further note, we advise you to always carry your real and up-to-date immigration documents with you at all times. On the other hand, if you are told to allow the officer to search your vehicle, you have the right to deny the officer access to the vehicle unless he/she has a warrant or special reason such as looking for criminal evidence.

Similarly, if you are visited by any immigration officers/agents such as ICE in your home, you have the right to deny them access inside, if there isn’t a warrant. If there is on the other hand, request the immigration officers to slide the warrant under the door or demonstrate the warrant through a window.
