importing users to Security group

Dear experts
could you please help me with this one?

I have a security group that I exported users via PowerShell to a csv file and  I now need to import those users into a new Universal security group but I am receiving  an error from PowerShell during import process.

this is the full code I used.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$list =import-csv "H:\temp\export\usg_users.csv
foreach ($user in $list) {
add-ADGroupMember -identity USG-Security GroupNAme -member $user.SamAccountname
}
error is
Add-ADgroupmember: A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument "GroupNAme"

there is a - and  space in the actual security group name in AD. so name is written such as USG-Customer Services

any ideas why I am receiving this please? thanks.

You need to enclose the group name in quotes.
Add-ADGroupMember -Identity 'USG-Security GroupName' -Member $user.SamAccountname
