Honduran immigrant illegal in Belize


Nelvin Rodriquez Orellana

A Honduran national who entered Belize illegally has been caught while trying to make his way to the United States. Twenty-five year old Nelvin Rodriquez Orellana appeared in court unrepresented before Magistrate Adolph Lucas where he was read a single charge for illegal entry and has been deemed a prohibited immigrant. He was fined one thousand dollars plus five dollars court fee, but Orellana asked for assistance to communicate with his brother in Atlanta, Georgia to be able to pay the fine. For now, he remains in the custody of the immigration department. Orellana entered Belize on Monday from the West and was intercepted on a bus heading north. When immigration officers asked him for documents, he could not produce them and admitted to entering the country illegally.
