The family of a 4-year-old who was detained and deported to Guatemala for months despite being a U.S. citizens is among 10 to file suit against CBP, AlterNet reports.

The lawsuits range from unlawful treatment to discrimination.

Another lawsuit was filed by a 53-year-old woman who says she suffered a stroke after being forced to sit in her urine-soaked jeans without food or water.
