Indians detained in Oregon to get legal access: US judge 

New Delhi: In what could provide much-needed relief to 123 immigrants, including 52 Indians detained in a federal prison in Portland, Oregon, a US Judge has ordered access to legal aid. Citing The Portland Mercury, news agency PTI today said that an Oregon federal judge has granted the detained immigrants being held in a Sheridan prison immediate access to legal aid by allowing attorneys to meet them. In an exclusive report on June 21, The Tribune had highlighted the ‘inhuman conditions’ in which these illegal immigrants have been kept in detention since mid-May with the largest group belonging to Indians, mostly from Punjab.
