You might relate to many other Texas immigrants who say they often feel worried or afraid that a U.S. immigration officer is going to come to their house or workplace to arrest them and place them in detention. Thousands of immigrants are currently detained, many of whom are women and children. If you legally entered the United States, there are still issues that can place you at risk for deportation, such as failing to renew a visa after it expires.
There are several things you can do to be prepared for possible legal problems. It's a good idea to consider certain high priority issues, such as your health, finances and any dependents for whom you currently provide. If immigration officers approach you, it is always best to try to remain calm and cooperate as best you can. It's also good to carry contact information with you, so you can access legal support, as needed.
