'It was absolutely mortifying': Australian woman, 26, who flew to Hawaii for romantic holiday with her American boyfriend ends up in JAIL on her birthday after immigration staff go through her diary

'They were convinced I wanted to immigrate illegally because my diary had notes like 'going away drinks' and 'last day at work', things I got in order before expecting to be away for three months,' she wrote on Facebook.

Hill left Australia for Honolulu on Monday on a 88-day tourist visa on a fully-paid trip.

But after being taken into an interview room, she was handcuffed and locked up in a federal prison.

'I was told there were no more flights to Australia that day and I would have to spend the night at the detention center, which the officer described as 'like jail but you can't make any phone calls',' she said.

'I was frisked, made to undress in front of an officer and show that there was nothing in my hair or mouth, and asked to 'squat and cough' which was absolutely mortifying.'
