According to a press release from the UFW, the 19-second ringtone delivers the following crucial message: If immigration comes to arrest you, keep calm. You have the right not to sign anything and not to say anything. You have the right to remain silent; also the right to ask for an attorney.
The UFW says the ringtone reminds people of their rights, but it also reminds immigrants they have allies among immigrant rights groups such as the UFW and UFW Foundation.
