Summary Arizona's violent border is the busiest cross-over point for illegal immigrants to the United States. No state is as hostile to undocumented immigrants as Arizona, yet the city of Phoenix is home to thousands of people who live in the shadows. Sterling brings to light the invisible people who continue to live and work there despite all the hardships involved, and she exposes the fabric of a divisive national crisis.
