Is there grounds to file a lawsuit against immigration (ICE) after detaining a US citizen for a month?

Asked about 1 year ago - Long Beach, CA

we tried to tell ICE/DHS that the person they were detaining derived citizenship when she was 13 yrs old. After a month they finally released our loved one because they said she is indeed a citizen as we have been telling them,
we tried to call the 800 number we wrote letters to public advocate and kept getting either generic response or run around answers. after about a month during a master calendar hearing we finally convinced the ice lawyer to listen and next day they released .
