Judge in Portland under scrutiny after undocumented immigrant escapes courtroom
PORTLAND -- In late January, Diddier Pacheco Salazar walked into a Portland, Oregon, courtroom for a hearing in his DUI case. Immigration agents were waiting the hallway outside, waiting to arrest the undocumented immigrant afterward and possibly deport him. He never came out. What happened in that courtroom is now the subject of an investigation. The focus is on the presiding judge, and whether she allowed Salazar to sneak out through another door.
