A group of three hunger striking detainees was eating some food, but remained under medical observation Monday at the federal immigration detention center in Tacoma.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the detainees ate more than half their breakfasts, which included milk.
Supporters have identified the men as Ramon Mendoza Pascual, Miguel Farias Sanchez and Jesus Gomez. They are in their late 30s.
They are protesting deportations, and for better treatment at the Northwest Detention Center on the Tideflats.
The federal agency has said it's been talking with strikers and working to address some of their concerns.
