ACLU complaint against CBP officials

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

We are learning the ACLU and other groups are suing because illegal immigrant children, who are here in this country alone, are claiming Customs and Border Protections officials have abused them.

Just like the unaccompanied children being flown into Tucson, many of these allegations involve children from Central America who were caught in Texas.

There are incidents ranging from sexual violence to inhumane conditions. One girl has said an agent squeezed a wound on her hand, allegedly saying 'You deserve to be hurt.'  A boy claims he was told to kneel until it hurts; while a second girl says she was sexually assaulted when she was searched and yet another claim about being fed moldy bread and being forced to drink water from a toilet tank. 

This complaint involves more than 100 immigrant children.

Customs and Border Protection has yet to release a statement about these allegations.
