Immigration Resources

The Trump Administration has issued executive orders, policies, and announcements directed at increasing immigration enforcement. These immigration initiatives have had a deep and devastating impact on the Stanford community and beyond. We have gathered resources for members of our community who are impacted by Trump’s enforcement actions.

Are You Impacted by the Trump Administration’s Rescission of DACA?

The Immigrants’ Rights Clinic provides free, confidential intakes for Stanford students who are undocumented or who have DACA.

To schedule an appointment, please email

If you are not a Stanford student, but have questions about DACA, there are resources available for you.

For a free intake, please contact Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto at (650)326-6440.

How Can You Protect Yourself Against Immigration Enforcement?

In the current political climate, it is more important than ever to know your rights! Here are steps you and your family can take to be prepared for an immigration enforcement action:

  1. Meet with your family to draft a family preparedness plan. Watch the Informed Immigrant’s Know your rights & family preparedness video. This video will guide you and your family on how to best prepare for an enforcement action.
  2. Learn what to do to protect yourself during an immigration enforcement action by reading the National Immigration Law Center’s How to protect yourself during an immigration raid.
  3. Learn what to do if you have contact with the police, immigration agents, or the FBI by watching the American Civil Liberties Union video what to do if you’re stopped by law enforcement.
  4. Always be prepared by carrying with you a copy of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center “Red Card.” These cards have Know Your Rights information that you can use during an enforcement action.
  5. Share Know Your Rights information with friends and family using the Immigrant Defense Project’s Know Your Rights with ICE Flyers. The flyers have answers to commonly asked questions about immigrants’ rights during an ICE enforcement action.

Hotline Numbers to Call to Report Immigration Enforcement in Your Community

Nonprofits and government entities in the Bay Area have partnered to provide free, confidential hotlines that you can call if you see ICE or immigration agents conducting enforcement in your community. Callers will be connected to a Rapid Response Network of advocates and attorneys who are on call to provide immediate assistance.
