In 2008, before Arizona had hit the national stage for it’s anti-immigrant policies, this documentary takes us to Maricopa County, AZ.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s sweeps of entire neighborhoods were generating intense criticism, and setting the stage for the statewide, and nationwide battles over immigration.

This documentary originally was broadcast by Making Contact in November 2008.

I also wrote a print piece on the situation in Arizona for In These Times Magazine.
