Book cover for "State Out Of The Union: Arizona and the Final Showdown Over the American Dream."

Arizona has become the epicenter for one of the most polarizing issues in America: illegal immigration.

It's controversial immigration enforcement policy, known as SB 1070, was hotly debated, made it to the Supreme Court and sparked protests across the country. But before Gov. Jan Brewer pushed the state into the immigration spotlight, Arizona had a history of difficulties with its immigrant population.

To learn more we talk to Jeff Biggers, a native of the Copper State and the author of a new book called, "State Out of the Union, Arizona and the Final Showdown over the American Dream."
