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.

    Well, Sheriff, I'll be happy to explain the big hype to you. Your state legislature had enough of being fiscally raped by illegal aliens while our Federal government stands by and does little to nothing. Republicans don't want to upset big business that depends on cheap labor and Democrats need more welfare recipiants to expand their voter base.
