"U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants have filed suit, claiming they were abused by Customs and Border Protection agents, court documents show. Advocacy groups filed suit, saying they indicate a pattern of abuse by border agents, Tuesday on behalf of 10 plaintiffs, USA Today said. The lawsuit claims immigrants were forced to sit in freezing holding cells without beds and toilets for as long as six days in southern Texas before they were transported to other facilities, a lawyer representing the immigrants said."
