A Physician who was busted on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 in Orange Walk after he entered Belize illegally through the Rio Hondo River was ordered to be extradited to his home but as to where his home is, that is presently unknown. That is because Juan Jose Garcia was born in Honduras but has been living in the United States for some years now.

Garcia, a 68-year-old physician, was arraigned on August 3, 2017 before Magistrate Aretha Ford. Garcia, who was unrepresented before the magistrate, pleaded guilty to illegal entry, an Immigration offense.

He was fined a total of $1,005 in default he will serve a 6 months’ imprisonment. He was able to pay on August 4, 2017 after he was arraigned. The magistrate then ordered for him to be extradited to his home country. Since it is not yet certain where home is for Garcia, authorities are attempting to ascertain where he will be returned to.
