DescriptionAn Arizona sheriff is taking a stand against the state's controversial new immigration law, vowing not to enforce what he called racial profiling.

Pima County's top cop, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, blasts the news rules that will allow law enforcement to question people about their immigration status.

Dupnik called SB 1070 "racist," "disgusting," and "unnecessary," in an interview with Tucson's ABC affiliate, KGUN.

The sheriff says his officers won't participate in the crackdown because it forces deputies to profile while they patrol the areas surrounding Tucson.

Dupnik said he won't let illegal immigrants go free, either.
