U.S. Sen. John McCain has pledged $5,000 to a legal fund for two Arizona sheriffs defending themselves against lawsuits over the state's new immigration enforcement law.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever have retained an attorney to defend their offices against federal litigation if they're prevented from implementing the law.

Barring a federal court ruling to stop it, Arizona's strict law is scheduled to take effect July 29.

Pinal County is 80 miles north of the Mexican border and Cochise County borders Mexico, and both are considered major corridors for drug and human smuggling.

The sheriffs say there's been a stream of illegal-immigration-fueled criminal activity for more than a decade.
