WASHINGTON – The sheriff of the most populous county in Arizona says he’s “not going to put up with any civil disobedience” when the state’s new immigration law takes effect.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that if protesters want to block his jail, he’ll put them in it.

The Arizona law, which takes effect Thursday, requires officers enforcing other laws to check a person’s immigration status if they suspect the person is in the country illegally.

Arpaio told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t know “what the big hype is.”

He says it’s “a crime to be here illegally and everyone should enforce” the law.

    I think Sheriff Joe's approach is the proper one. LE will enforce the lawas it is written. Interfere with that process and you go to the cross bar hotel.

    It would be illegal not to enforce the law.

    You know, it's almost sad, but this guy is my hero.

    The reason I say it's sad, is because not just every American in a political position, but every AMERICAN period, should have this same mentality. Sheriff Joe's viewpoints shouldn't be all the hype it is. For goodness sakes, he's talking about enforcing the law, thats it. Everybody should back what he's doing without question, unless of course you are illegal.

    This is our country. Be proud of it, take care of it, and don't let people tread on it.

    Think its about time somebody made an approach on this problem. I think that reducing the number of illegals will reduce the amount of welfare abuse and social services abuses. One small step at a time. Have to support these actions.

    You know that the liberial weenies are going to use this against him when he does it saying they have a right to protest. Well yes they do have that right BUT they do not have the right to interfere with LE operations or block access to the SO or jail. Sheriff, you have the support of 99.5% of LEO's and more than 50% of the nation so keep doing what you do! I wonder if anyone tells him what we post here on PL? How about it any MCSO Deputies, you ever tell him how much support he has here?
