What Transportation Will Require Me to Have Documents?

While it is possible for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to apprehend an immigrant with no legal immigration status at any place and at any time, there are places where immigration enforcement agents are more likely to be present than others. Generally, an undocumented immigrant should have no difficulties traveling by motor vehicle, bus, or train, unless you traveling near a border between the U.S. and another country, such as Canada or Mexico. Borders areas typically receive heightened scrutiny by ICE, and you may be more likely to encounter an ICE agent when traveling in Southern California, Arizona, or Texas, as well as near Niagara Falls in New York. Airports are another place where there are extra security measures in place and ICE agents are more likely to be present. While many undocumented immigrants have flown from place to place within the U.S. with no issues, there is a heightened risk of immigration enforcement. In order to travel via airplane, an individual must present a government-issued ID. A foreign passport serves that purpose, but if immigration officials review your documents, you are at risk of detention. If you already are in removal proceedings, however, you are free to travel via airplane within U.S. borders. You simply will need to produce your government-issued ID or passport, as well as a copy of your Notice to Appear, which is the legal document indicating that immigration officials already have interviewed you and begun the deportation process.
