American without documents ordered to leave Belize

An American national unable to produce documents for his stay in Belize has been ordered to leave by Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer.

47 year old William Turpin, Jr., told police who picked him up that he lost his passport and has no other travel documents. He was handed over to Immigration Department officers, and on Tuesday the court ordered his deportation forthwith to the U.S.

Last week another American, Timothy Eels, claimed similar circumstances but was likewise deemed a prohibited immigrant.
