Immigration Resources

The Regional Center for Border Rights has compiled several documents of use to immigrants in the case of detention by police.  If you are an immigrant (even if you are in the United States legally), we encourage you to read these documents carefully and take the necessary steps so that you and your family are prepared and know your rights in case of arrest.

Each of the documents offers important and interesting information.  If you would like to learn more in Spanish or download these same documents in Spanish, please visit the Spanish section of our website.

The ACLU of New Mexico does not offer immigration services.  For people needing immigration-related legal counsel or services, we recommend contacting the following organizations:
