(Background guitar music)
“”In our country every immigrant enjoys rights protected by the Constitution and by the Courts. We can challenge illegal deportations and our children can attend school. I’m Cruz Reynoso and I understand the importance of these rights because I’m the son of immigrant farm worker parents and I was a judge for the Supreme Court of California. I’m very concerned that these rights are being threatened. It is very important that you learn what your rights are and how to protect them.””

Outro: guitar music and tag line:
“”Call the ACLU at 888-209-3889″”
