Arshy Mann reports at Daily Xtra:

Josué Martín Elvir Zamora thinks he’s a dead man walking.

The 26-year-old Honduran citizen has been living in Canada since December 2013, when he applied for refugee status.

But in a few hours, the Canadian government plans to deport him back to Honduras. His flight is booked for 3pm EST on Nov 7, 2017.

“If I go back home, it’s suicide, because I know what will happen if I go back,” he tells Xtra, as tears well up in his eyes. “That’s why I’m so nervous now. I’m out of this world.”

Elvir Zamora says he’s a gay man, but the Canadian government doesn’t believe him.
