On The other hand, Three Indian men seeking asylum in the US have been forced to receive intravenous drips at a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in El Paso, Texas, on Sunday as their hunger strike entered twentieth day, their attorney said.
The men went on a hunger strike at the ICE detention centre on July 9, demanding they be released while they appeal their deportation orders.
They are asylum seekers whose claims have been denied and are seeking to reopen or appeal their cases, said their attorney Linda Corchado.
All three have been in detention for months, and one has been detained for over a year. The Department of Justice last week filed orders with federal judges to feed or hydrate them non-consensually, the Associated Press reported.
