While in the airport, she was approached by US border officials and taken to a detention room where she was patted down, fingerprinted, photographed, and interrogated - including being asked if she was pregnant.
Ms Gourley allegedly breached her visa conditions and was sent home on the next flight to Brisbane.

'It sounded like it was a known issue. It didn't sound like it was specific to my situation,' she told news.com.au.
Ms Gourley said staff eventually decided that not having boarding passes for all three flights wouldn't be a problem.
She then boarded her plane with just her luggage receipt as proof for her connecting flights to Philadelphia and Montreal.
Ms Gourley said she believes she would have been able to stay in the US if she had all three tickets.
She said the immigration officer in LA was convinced she was up to no good because she didn't have physical copies of her boarding passes.
'I did all the right things, but he just wasn't having a bar of it,' she said.
Her ordeal at the US airport made headlines as it followed the US Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v Wade which allows states to ban abortions.
At the time, she claimed an official at LA Airport asked her more than once if she'd terminated a pregnancy.

Ms Gourley was told her entry had been denied as she had breached the conditions of the visa waiver program, which allows Australians and citizens of many other countries to travel to the US for short trips without getting a visa.
Since arriving home in Australia, Ms Gourley was contacted by a US Border Protection official investigating her treatment at the airport - but she said that didn't help the situation.
'They asked me why I didn't raise the inappropriate questioning with the supervisors and why I didn't ask for a manager to intervene,' she said.
Despite the turn of events, Ms Gourley says she is still keen to head back overseas but is struggling to get any assistance.
The website she had been using for more than five years to cat sit in all over the world, Trusted Housesitters, has also said they could not help her and it was up to immigration officials to make decisions on where she could travel.
Now Ms Gourley's only remaining option to have her denial of entry into the US overturned is to submit a freedom of information request.Read more
