Commercial Deportation Flight Immigrant Z

IMX_Single frame3_26 JAN
These are the tweets from our last day in the country. We had to pick up our new identities then we found ourselves on a deportation flight. Immigrant_Z was arrested and held in detention for a day and questioned. Her link to Immigrant X was established, but there was not enough to charge her with except a misdemeanour. Read on through the live tweets from our departure flight below.
