Tonight, we understand that Ms. Rodriguez, named by INTERPOL and Honduran authorities as suspected to be involved in an international human trafficking, faces removal from Belize.

Ms. Rodriguez’s permit was issued to her three weeks ago after she crossed into Belize through the Western Border. She was to have left the country on January 28 but was instead found in the Sunset Park area on Monday.

While Ms. Rodriguez is officially still in jail for six months because she was unable to pay her fine of $1,000, local Immigration officials asked Magistrate Leslie Hamilton to order her removal from Belize, which he did.

As soon as Honduran law enforcement provides Belize with the official arrest warrant, that is coming as early as Friday, Rodriguez is headed back home.
