Q: Hello, I have an aquantince back in Palestine. They overstayed their visas and now could face deportation. What happens

They are U.S. citizens, born there. How would the process go, would they be able to choose what state they get deported to or to the state they were born in? Who would pay for the flight? What happens afterwards that?

David Luther Woodward
David Luther Woodward answered on Dec 21, 2021

What happens is subject to Israeli law and the agencies of their government that enforce it. Your guess is just about as good as mine, but I would suspect that they will be repatriate on a local airline and dropped off at the nearest arrival point for that airline in the U. S.

It's a question whether breach of contract has occurred and whether there is misrepresentation that you relied on to enter into the contract. If there is misrepresentation that you relied on, you can ask for the seller to pay the fee. If he does not, you can bring a lawsuit in small claim court.
