Logan Phillips grew up 14 miles from the US-Mexico border.
Today, the 28-year-old bilingual poet and performance artist spends equal time in both countries, performing solo and with a group called Verbobala.
Arizona Between Nosotros (or "Arizona Between Us") is a name Phillips says comes from the bad reputation and connotation Arizona and its residents now carry as a result of the debate around illegal immigration and SB1070.
