A group of immigrants filed a lawsuit Thursday. They claim they were exploited by an employment firm and several companies that used temporary workers at O'Hare Airport. The workers say they're owed thousands of hours worth of unpaid wages.

Several of the immigrants filing suit were arrested in a raid at O'Hare last year. Workers who allegedly used fake work documents were taken into custody.

This lawsuit is separate from the federal criminal investigation.
