You can file a complaint at any time with the Department of Homeland Security. However, without havin mg an opportunity to review the criminal and immigration records, I cannot assess whether the complaint has merit. Also, please keep in mind that filing a complaint will not necessarily resolve your immigration issues.

Like my colleague stated ... you can file a complaint anytime.
But, as horrible as you think they treated you ... be prepared for them to 'win' with any complaint you file.
Hire a civil rights lawyer ... it is the only way you can improve your chances of success.

You can file whatever complaint you want. This is USA. However, in my opinion, your facts may not rise to the level of a civil rights violation. Talk to a civil rights attorney. I understand the concept of American exceptionalism and the fact that in this country people expect things to be and work better than in others. However, when I run into questions like yours, I always think to myself whether you would give the thought of suing the government any consideration had you been in your country and ran into a similar situation, and what would be your expectation of the law enforcement response there.
