A civil defense corps that gained national attention in Arizona has formed a chapter in Maryland, prompting a political battle over the nearly 10,000 day laborers in the state. On one side is a controversial, anti-illegal alien group calling themselves the Maryland Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. On the other side is the immigration advocacy group Casa of Maryland.

Note: An earlier version of this video contained a photograph of a border patrol group not affiliated with the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps.
