You do not have to allow any law enforcement officer or agent to enter your home or office, unless they have a search warrant.
Agents must have a search warrant to enter your house, except in an emergency situation (in hot pursuit of a suspect to a crime). Even with a search warrant, you are under no obligation to answer any questions without a lawyer present. Make it clear to the agent that you do not consent to the search so that they cannot go beyond what the warrant authorizes.
You are not obligated to immediately speak to an FBI agent. Ask the agent for his or her contact information so that you will be able to get back in touch with them later.
If you are visited in person, ask for a business card. The agent must provide you his or her contact information upon your request.
You have a Constitutional right to remain silent.
It is not a crime to refuse to answer questions. You do not have to talk to anyone, even if you have been arrested or are in jail. You should affirmatively and unambiguously state that you wish to remain silent and that you wish to consult an attorney. Once you make the request to speak to a lawyer, do not say anything else. If you have already answered some questions, you can refuse to answer other questions until you have a lawyer. Depending on state laws, you may have to provide your name for identity purposes.
Enter an interview with the understanding that the interviewee has absolute discretion as to what questions to answer.
For example, one may choose to answer questions about their neighborhood or activity they may deem suspicious and yet refuse to answer any questions regarding their immigration status.
It is illegal for law enforcement to perform any stops, searches, detentions or removals based solely on your race, national origin, religion, sex or ethnicity.
This also applies at airports, your place of employment, educational institutions, and private and/or public forums.
