As many as 5 million immigrants could stay in the country under Obama's order, and basically, Arpaio's argument was that those people would be committing crimes in Maricopa County.
The three-judge panel, which included two Obama appointees and one judge appointed by President George W. Bush, said the suit failed "to allege an injury" because of the president's deferred-deportation program.
