Brooklyn Defender Services and the American Civil Liberties Union recently launched “We Have Rights,” a national immigrant empowerment campaign to inform immigrant communities of what to do when interacting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The campaign centers around four animated videos available in various languages, including English, Spanish, Arabic and Haitian Creole. The series was created with input from immigrant communities and legal experts and is voiced by an all-star cast of influencers and activists, including actor Jesse Williams.
The Trump administration has increased ICE enforcement and removal operations in 2017 by 30 percent across the country and included many people who previously were not likely to be targeted by ICE, such as people married to American citizens, young people and people who have never been convicted of a crime.
The videos can be seen along with other immigrant information at wehaverights.us and aclu.org/we-have-rights.
