With a 1994 statute put in place, it requires the United States Attorney General to agree to pay the state for housing an illegal immigrant or choose to take this illegal immigrant into federal custody.

Wilson asked the Immigration and Naturalization Services to take a 25-year-old alien that was currently serving time in Idaho Correctional Institution Orofino for various drug offenses. However, the Immigration and Naturalization Services refused. In March of 1996, Wilson chose to sue the federal government over the 1994 statute.
