American Citizen Sues Feds, Hospital for Invasive Body Cavity Searches at Border

The facts are appalling:  A slight, 54-year-old American woman was strip-searched, then subjected to repeated X-rays, rectal and vaginal probes by CBP and the University Medical Center in El Paso for six hours.  Finding nothing, CBP released her without any apology.  The hospital billed her $5,000 for 'services.'  Needless to say, she is suing CBP and the hospital.
