    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.

    Let's hope his police force is like Chicago's from the late 60's.

    I'd like to see Arpaio spend a week in one of his tents. The guy sends corrections back to the medieval ages

    I know I wouldn't be proud of Joe Arpaio if he were my Sheriff.

    So now showing "civil disobedience" is a first amendment right?

    Since the sheriff said that he wouldn't tolerate any "civil disobedience" at protests, and never once said that he would arrest protesters who weren't breaking any laws, what could you possibly see wrong with his statement?

    Talk about stretching the truth.

    "Watch out, Joe said he'd arrest anyone who protests the Arizona law!!!!!!" Well, not really, he said he wouldn't put up with anyone who breaks the law while protesting. Sounds about right to me. Protest civilly and you'll be just fine.

    We'll see when and if he starts throwing people who are merely protesting outside his jails without blocking it in jail. However, I hope that's not the case.
