New film in Arizona focuses on Sheriff Joe Arpaio, immigration

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A documentary showcasing Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his stance on immigration premiered in a Scottsdale theater Friday.

'Two Americans' showcases two different perspectives on the immigration issue. 

One side depicts the struggles and stance of Arpaio. 

The other side shows what happens to a family when parents of children who are citizens are deported.

One of the film's directors, Valeria Fernandez, has spent years covering immigration as a journalist. 

For the past four years, she's been documenting immigration and a family's struggle to stay together.

The film is available to watch at the Harkins Theater 14 on Shea in Scottsdale.  It will be playing until November 1.
