A federal judge ordered immigration authorities Friday to force-feed three Pakistani men who are waging a hunger strike to protest the handling of their immigration cases.
The order affects three detainees at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility near Miami. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida has asked the Department of Homeland Security to investigate the men’s cases and treatment.
ICE released a statement Friday evening saying the agency is closely monitoring one detainee who was still on a hunger strike, but the statement didn’t mention force-feeding.
