Immigration Hotlines | Líneas Directas de Inmigración

NNIRR has gathered a list of national, state and local Immigration Hotlines. See our list below for hotlines where you can:

  • report raids in your area
  • seek help if being detained or at risk of being deported
  • report missing migrants

We will update these as new numbers become available. If you know any that are not listed, please send us an email with subject “hotline details” to: nnirrinfo@nnirr.org

A note of caution: There are often rumors of raids in many areas, and the hotlines can help verify if they are indeed taking place. If calling a hotline to report a raid, please make sure that you have either directly witnessed what happened, or have a reliable source who has and can provide details.

NNIRR ha compilado una lista de las líneas directas de inmigración al nivel nacional, estatal y local. Vea la lista a continuación para conectar con las líneas directas donde puede:

  • reportar redadas en su área
  • buscar ayuda si está detenido o en riesgo de ser deportado
  • reportar o averiguar de familiares migrantes desaparecidos

Mantenemos la lista actualizada y añadimos nuevos números cuando estén disponibles. Si conoce alguna línea que no esté en la lista, por favor envíanos un correo electrónico con los datos de la línea directa a: nnirrinfo@nnirr.org

Una nota de precaución: a menudo hay rumores de redadas en muchas áreas, y las líneas directas pueden ayudar a verificar si han ocurrido. Si llama a una línea directa para denunciar una redada, asegúrese de haber visto directamente lo que sucedió o de contar con un testigo confiable que tenga y pueda proporcionar detalles verdaderos.

Toll-free phone numbers are available for families separated by the US government between July 017 and June 2018. Families can use these numbers to reach a court-appointed Steering Committee that is conducting broad outreach to locate families and provide them with additional information on steps forward.

Information and numbers in English
