General Questions

I HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY TELEPHONE OR EMAIL BY SOMEONE CLAIMING TO BE FROM THE DHS, INCLUDING ICE, OR CLAIMING TO REPRESENT OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES (IRS, FBI, U.S. DEPT. OF STATE, ETC.) WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you are contacted by telephone or email by someone claiming to be a government employee or someone asking you to provide personal information about you (i.e. your name, citizenship, date or place of birth, address, bank information, credit card information etc.), you should not provide any information. Instead, you should immediately contact Student Enrichment Services to inform SES of the communication you received and seek advice.

I AM IN DACA STATUS OR I AM UNDOCUMENTED AND HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Even relatively minor criminal offenses can have serious consequences for your immigration status. If you are arrested or charged with a crime or a serious driving offense like driving while under the influence of alcohol, you should retain a lawyer to represent you in court and obtain legal advice on the possible immigration consequences. SES can help you identify a suitable resource for legal advice.
