Belizean police officer Mark Hinds from the Corozal district had a very interesting experience when he entered Mexico illegally by crossing into a southern Mexican village from Belize; by canoe !.
Well the Mexican authorities didn’t think ‘Hinds’ look like a Mexican when he tried to catch a bus heading to Chetumal from a village near the border on the Mexico side.
After the Mexican Federalies confirmed the ‘Hinds’ was from Belize and had entered Mexico illegally, they escorted him off the bus and notified Belizean diplomats in Mexico.
Hinds spent the night in Chetumal immigration jail in Mexico and then handed over to Belizean authorities in Corozal as a deportee from Mexico, with all the paperwork to indicate the official handing over of a deportee from Mexico to Belize.
