25-year-old, Elias Solozano and 43- year-old, Sergio Rodriguez, were charged with immigration offences when they appeared today before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford. Solozano, a Salvadoran national, was charged with failure to comply with the conditions of his visitor’s permit since immigration officers found him working as a welder at Rodriguez Welding on January 9 without a work permit.

He was fined one thousand dollars and five dollars court cost and was ordered to pay forthwith, in default, 6 months in prison. An order was made for his deportation to Salvador either after he has served the time or paid the fine. Meanwhile, Rodriguez, a Salvadoran national who is a naturalized Belizean and the owner of Rodriguez Welding, was charged with employing an immigrant without a work permit, namely Solozano.
