PHOENIX - Monday marked the Phoenix debut of a documentary on illegal immigration and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Two Americans " centers around Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio and his fight against illegal immigration. The film also shares the story of a 9-year-old girl whose parents get arrested by sheriffs deputies for living in the country illegally.
I think it will provide viewers with a lot of background to understand how we got to where we are, said Valeria Fernandez, one of the films directors.
The directors hope the film helps paint a clear picture of the struggles some in the Hispanic community face.
Sheriff Joe does represent a lot of whats wrong with the politics of this debate thats going on around illegal immigration, said director Dan DeVivo.

The life of a 9-year old child is forever changed when Americas Toughest Sheriff arrests her Mexican parents for working at a local carwash. Fighting to rescue her parents from deportation, Katherine Figueroa becomes the poster child of a movement to oust Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office. Exposed by the media, Kathys family is challenged to overcome their fear of living in Arizona. But when Sheriff Joe uses his power to retaliate against the County Board, its the legality of his actions that is questioned. Now the Sheriffs fate hangs in the balance of an FBI criminal probe.
Enter the heart of an American family living in the shadows of a state that has criminalized their existence. Walk in the shoes of a public official who has won enormous political gains by incarcerating illegals as he stares down criminal charges of his own. Kathy needs her family. Joe needs the power of his badge. Two Americans will examine the very personal impact of U.S. immigration policies.
What a load of bull****! It talks about one white MAN’S love of powah and a GIRL’S love of food stamps but doesn’t say jack**** about the American taxpayer’s love of tax cuts and not wanting to subsidize foreign invaders. Let’s get real here Donny and Valeria!!! Your commie propaganda sucks!
So very simple—deport the parents and their child. It is obvious that we have laws on the books which are worthless. How many laws can you and I break and get a free pass? If this is the case, I will rob the first bank on my way home today. After all, Obama owes us all money for what he pissed away on car companies, solar companies, and even his vacations.
310 million U. S. Citizens
20-35 million illegal aliens
This is played off as if the 20 to 35 million deserve to have their voices heard just as loudly as the 310 million Citizens voices.
People here illegally deserve no voice. I take that back, they should be able to say “Good-bye” as they are shipped back to the nation of their origin.
Two Americas? One American you d—kweeds!
