Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told CNN his first thoughts on the news of the new immigration policy were, "politics, timing, why now."

The new policy by the Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives.

Arpaio said he will continue enforcing the illegal immigrants laws just as he always has.
