This case involved a challenge to the Trump Administration's immigration policies concerning asylum and family separation.

On June 26, 2018, a coalition of states filed this complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington against the Trump Administration and its top immigration officials, challenging the Administration’s practice of refusing entry to asylum applicants at the southern border as well as its family separation policy. The states, represented by their attorneys general, were Washington, California, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The states alleged that they suffered immediate and irreparable injuries to their sovereign, proprietary and quasi-sovereign interests, and sought relief for substantive and procedural due process violations, equal protection violations, and violations under the Administrative Procedure Act and asylum laws. The case was assigned to District Judge Marsha Pechman.

Specifically, the states argued that the Administration’s policies harmed their sovereign and proprietary interests by 1) interfering with their licensing authority and rendering them unable to enforce their own legal mandates and public policy, and 2) burdening their state-funded legal, healthcare, education, and other programs. They also argued that their quasi-sovereign interests in protecting the health and well-being of their residents were harmed by the policy.

On July 11, 2018, the federal government moved to dismiss, transfer, or stay the proceedings pending the resolution of a related class-action lawsuit, Ms. L. v. ICE, which was active in the Southern District of California. It's here in the Clearinghouse). According to the federal government, the states wished to engage in “sweeping and burdensome” discovery, duplicative of what was already being conducted in Ms. L In that case, a class of parents who had been separated from their children had already been certified. Since the class members in Ms. L included individuals the plaintiff states purported to represent, the defendants claimed that ongoing litigation in the present court would interfere with the orderly administration of that case. The defendants argued that the court should dismiss the case out of comity and, in the alternative, that the case should be transferred to the Southern District of California or stayed until the Ms. L case had progressed further.

On August 8, 2018, Judge Pechman heard oral arguments on the motion to dismiss, transfer, or stay the proceedings. She ordered the case transferred to the Southern District of California, finding that there was substantial overlap between the states’ claim in this case and the class claim in Ms. L Judge Pechman noted that the government had much to do in the way of reuniting separated families and that requiring the government to respond to multiple orders from multiple district courts would only stand in the way of those efforts. 2018 WL 3752220.

The case was transferred to the Southern District of California and given a new docket number, 3:18-cv-1979. It was assigned to Judge Dana M. Sabraw.

On March 18, 2019, the defendants requested that the proceedings in the present case either be bifurcated or held in abeyance. On May 20, Judge Sabraw granted defendants' request to hold this case in abeyance pending the outcome of the proceedings in Ms. L.

(As of June 23, 2021, in Ms. L. v. ICE, the parties continued to work on implementing their court-approved settlement agreement. Additionally, a steering committee was continuing efforts to contact all parties and attorneys relevant to the certified class. The above was reported in a joint status report published on May 19, 2021.

This case is ongoing, though in abeyance.
