        The Lowdown | What Legal Rights Do Undocumented Immigrants Have? Lesson Plan

Immigration advocates have long tried to make this clear to undocumented residents, many of whom are unaware that they have any legal protections at all. Given the Trump administration’s promise of aggressive immigration enforcement, immigration advocates are educating communities with “know your rights” trainings and workshops. In this lesson, students will examine rights guaranteed by the Constitution, and will write and create informational texts that communicate immigrants’ legal rights.
