PHOENIX (KPHO) -

Sheriff Joe Arpaio had his first run-in with a group of suspected illegal immigrants since things heated up with the Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice recently revoked his deputies’ ability to check immigration status inside Maricopa County jails.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Justin Griffin says they pulled over a vehicle and have eight people in their custody for human smuggling at 35th Avenue and Durango.

Griffin says they attempted to give four of the detainees to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but MCSO says ICE is refusing to take them.

Griffin says, “We asked ICE, ‘If we were DPS, would you take them from us?’ And we were told specifically, ‘Yes.’”
