Customs officers at Newark Airport used a 12-year-old Polish girl as bait to capture her illegal immigrant brother, her family claimed Wednesday.

Ewelina Krzywda was held 10 hours by officers who threatened to send her to a juvenile jail in Chicago and a foster family in Texas if her brother didn't collect her in person, relatives charge.

"When they called me, I told them, 'I'm no fool'," the brother, Marcin Krzywda, told the Daily News. "Then I called the \ consulate to tell them what was going on."
