Local law enforcement can't enforce immigration laws?

"The Obama administration is curbing the powers of an Arizona sheriff who has led one of the most contentious fights against illegal immigrants. Under an agreement involving local enforcement of federal immigration law, Sheriff Joe Arpaio's deputies will no longer have the authority to arrest suspected illegal immigrants in the streets in the course of their duty."

Why do local law enforcement officers need permission to enforce any law?

Isn't that their job?
