The woman, who has been identified only as Ana, said that she was standing due to her pain, despite an agent's order to sit, and clutching the side of a trash can for stability when she partially gave birth to her daughter in her pants, according to her complaint. She said agents and medical staff reached for the child, some without gloves.

"Although joyous about the birth of her child, (Ana) felt humiliated after realizing she had been surrounded by about 20 strangers, including multiple Border Patrol agents and other unknown detained men, while she gave birth," the complaint says.

CBP said that according to its records, Ana was undergoing a medical assessment at the station when staff realized that she was in labor.

"They quickly mobilized to successfully deliver her baby," a CBP spokesman said, noting that Ana was soon transported to a hospital.

The agency "supports what appear to be nothing short of heroic actions of medical personnel and agents on scene and welcomes the response of DHS OIG," a CBP spokesman said.

In the complaint, she said that the temperature inside the Border Patrol station was "extremely cold."

In its statement, CBP also disputed this point, saying that under its guidelines, agents are not supposed to use temperature for punitive measures and are to keep it in a "reasonable and comfortable range."

The woman's complaint is not the first filed to call attention to alleged conditions for pregnant women in CBP custody. The ACLU filed another complaint on the issue in January.
