Four illegal immigrants busted, employed without proper documents

Jesus Contreras

The Immigration Department made a bust this morning at a construction site which is managed by a Belizean-Honduran national, fifty-one year old Jesus Contreras. He was found to be employing four illegal immigrants from Honduras, namely Roger Antonio Barahona Moncada, Orlin Medardo Garcia Balico, along with Ivor Luis Arriola Ortiz and Gervin Arnoldo Espinoza Hernandez. The arrest was made at a worksite on Fabers Road where they were constructing a church which has now been halted because of their detention. But unfortunately for the group, their arraignment could not be held this afternoon and they will be spending the night in lock-up at Queen Street Police Station.  Moncada, Balico, and Ortiz, who is a footballer player, were able to produce their passports which show they are in Belize illegally, but Hernandez could only produce an ID. Moncada has been living in Belize since 2007, while Balico since December 2013, and Ortiz, the footballer, since 2010. Once their entry permit expired, they did not seek renewals. Contreras has already been levied with four counts for employing persons not in possession of valid temporary working permits and he will be arraigned on Thursday.
