Know Your Rights

As our library mission states, “the library provides quality material for the public”, and for this reason, we have gathered updated information regarding information on Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigration enforcement. This information is also available in paper form at Rosewood Library. The links and information will be monitored and updated. 

Everyone living in the U.S. has certain basic rights under the United States Constitution. For example, you have the right to remain silent and you may refuse to speak to immigration officers.
