In recognition of the Trump administration's announced plan to do a sweep of NYC this weekend, here are two resources shared by colleagues on the Disability Rights Bar Association (DRBA) list.  

The fact sheet below, from the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center, outlines basic rights of immigration detainees to effective communication (including sign language interpreters if needed), accommodation of any disabilities, and necessary medical care and treatment. 

And here, from the Deaf Queer Resource Center, is a link to an ASL video explaining what to do if ICE comes to your door.
