PHOENIX -- Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said he's shocked by the Obama administration move to stop deporting some younger illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children.

"Now we have Obama, Holder and Napolitano that think they can just unilaterally wave their hand and change the law and policy," said Babeu, referring to the president, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

Babeu said the move is nothing more than the president trying to draw in the Hispanic vote for his re-election run.

"It's driven by politics. Looking for Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. Swing states vital to his re-election."
