Mikulski offers aid to Estonian workers

July 30, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski has pledged to aid three young Estonian immigrants after they helped federal authorities build a case against leaders of a Woodbine church who forced the Estonians to clean apartments and a bookstore.

Mikulski said in a statement, "I will continue to work with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to encourage them to do everything in their power to bring about a fair solution."

Three church organizers were sentenced to jail terms in U.S. District Court this week after pleading guilty to charges they conspired to commit visa and immigration fraud.
