You Have The Right To Film ICE

WITNESS, Immigrant Defense Project (IDP), and NYCLU created this resource in order to inform people that they have the right to film Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) targeting and arresting immigrants outside of courthouses, regardless of their immigration status or whether they know the person being arrested. The information in this resource is specific to a New York City-based audience, but many aspects can be applicable to communities in other spaces. It offers best practices for filming or documenting an incident. Always use your best judgement and assess risks to yourself and those you are filming before hitting “record”.

This KYR is not a replacement for legal advice.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
