NEW YORK (AP) -- Sarah Palin has contributed a foreword for an upcoming book by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

A statement issued Tuesday by HarperCollins says Brewer's "Scorpion for Breakfast" comes out Nov. 1 and will offer "a hard-nosed look at the dangerous situation in the border states."

Brewer signed a tough immigration bill in 2010 that the Justice Department has sued to block. It says it violates the Constitution because enforcing immigration law is a federal issue.

Palin has supported the law and called Arizona "ground zero" on dealing with border security.
