I am trying to decide the best way to document someone who made two attempts to emigrate to the US, being deported on the first attempt.


I use the standard emigrate, event-misc and immigrate tags for this situation.  These tags produce an individual narrative that has this basic structure.


He emigrated on Date #1 from xx.

He was deported on Date #2 at yy.


He emigrated on Date #3 from xx.

He immigrated on Date #4 to yy.


This is acceptable but is a bit lumbering.  (Ignoring the grammar that needs correction.) 


Note that I use "emigrate" for "attempted to emigrate".  Is that something I should consider handling differently?


Does anyone have a different way to handle this situation?  Perhaps something that produces a smoother individual narrate?


Thanks for your help!
