DECLARATION OF JUDITH WOOD 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTMCT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON 9 10 STATE OF WASHINGTON and STATE OF MINNESOTA, CWIL ACTION NO. 2:17-cv-00141-JLR 11 Plaintiff, 12 13 14 15 16 17 DECLARATION OF JUDITH WOOD V. DONALD TRUMP, in his official capacity as President of the United States; U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY; JOHN F. KELLY, in his official capacity as Secretary of the Department of 18 Homeland Security; TOM SHANNON, in his official capacity as Acting Secretary of State; and the UNITED 19 STATES OF AMERICA, 20 Defendants. 21 22 23 24 25 26 I, Judith Wood, hereby declare and affirm: 1. I have personal knowledge of the facts set forth in this declaration and I am competent to testify about them. 2. I am Senior Manager of Program Operations of Continuum College at the University of Washington. My responsibilities include administration of the Visiting DECLARATION OF JUDITH WOOD ATTORNEY GENERAL OF WASHINGTON 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 International Student Internship and Training (VISIT) program, which permits undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees at universities outside of the United States to participate in full-time supervised research and work-based learning experiences at the University of Washington (UW), a top research university. Each intern is hosted by a UW academic department or program and is supervised by a member of the faculty from the department or program. Each internship may be between 3 weeks and 12 months long. Interns must also hold a J-l student intern visa for the duration of their internships. 3. As part of the process in preparing to hosting a VISIT intern, the supervising faculty member is required to design a Training/Intemship Placement Plan that the intern will follow while they are at the UW. There are other human resources expended by the University in processing and setting up a VISIT internship, including the processing of the Form DS-2019 or "Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-l) Status" required by the U.S. Department of State. 4. I am aware of the U.S. Presidential Executive Order entitled "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States" issued on January 27, 2017, which I understand prohibits any person who is a citizen of any one of seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) from entering the U.S. for ninety days. 5. I am aware of two participants accepted into the VISIT program who were affected by the Executive Order referenced above. Each intern was scheduled to start their respective internships at the UW during the ninety-day ban imposed by the Executive Order. (It is my understanding that these are the same two interns referenced in the Second Declaration of Jeffrey Riedinger, Vice Provost for Global Affairs at the UW, which is on file in this case.) 6. I am aware that on Febmary 3, 2017, a judge in the U.S. District Court Western District of Washington issued a temporary restraining order that restrained the enforcement of the Executive Order referenced above. 26 DECLARATION OF 2 ATTORNEY GENERAL OF WASHINGTON JUDITH WOOD 7. Based on an email message sent to my office by the department hosting one of the 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 internships, it is my understanding that one of the VISIT interns referenced above, who is a citizen of one of the seven countries where he is pursuing his PhD., was only able to enter the U.S. because of the February 3, 2017 temporary restraining order. Had this order not been issued, the intern would not have been able to come to the UW to start his internship in the medical field. The UW also would have lost the one time VISIT program fee paid by the intern in the amount of $1,250.00 plus the quarterly registration fee of $45.00 for each academic quarter the intern was at the UW for the VISIT program. (His internship is expected to last four academic quarters.) The academic department hosting the intern would have also lost the benefit of the intern's participation in research and collaboration. 8. Based on an email message sent to my office by the department hosting the other internship, it is my understanding that the second affected VISIT intern, who is a citizen of one of the seven countries included in the Executive Order, where he is pursuing his PhD., decided to cancel his internship at the UW in one of the science related departments after the Executive Order was issued. This happened after the UW expended human resources in preparing for the intern's arrival. The UW also will lose the quarterly registration fee of $45.00 for each of academic quarters the intern was to be engaged in his internship (which was expected to last three academic quarters). (The hosting academic department had agreed to cover the applicable program fee.) I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Washington that the foregoing is tme and complete to the best of my knowledge. Dated this 9th day of February, 2017. 23 24 25 11 MjrfiTH woo6r"' 26 DECLARATION OF 3 ATTORNEY GENERAL OF WASHINGTON JUDITH WOOD
