Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio answers questions during an April news conference to announce his latest crime suppression enforcement patrols in Phoenix.
WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.
