Skye is correct, since a queue is basically a project, the group that is set on in that project's group field will determine which statuses anyone going into that project will see.
So anyone going to the issues within that queue will see the statuses set for that project's group.
Thanks Skye and Heather.
Yes, I tested this out. Will have to find another way of restricting certain users to specific statuses.
