- The right to protest is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It protects the rights of all persons, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.
- If you are detained by police, you do not have to provide your immigration status, how you came to the United States, or give ID documents that tell your country of origin. However, do not lie or provide false documents.
