Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he would not hesitate to arrest protesters that were blocking his jail.

"It appears that there are groups, individuals that are gearing up for some civil disobedience if this law does take effect," Stephanopoulos noted Wednesday. "Are you prepared for that? What are you going to do about it?"

"Yeah," replied Arpaio. "I'm ready for it. I hear a rumor they want to block my jails. So, if they want to block the jails, they can have a little trip in the jail."

"So, we're not going to put up with any civil disobedience just because they want to show -- give a message through the media about this situation that is occurring here in Arizona."
