American Registrant Denied Entry into Philippines

From Florida Action Committee:

The Philippines Bureau of Immigration announced that an American national previously convicted of rape was barred entry into the country. The 61 year old man was detained upon arrival at Naia airport on May 2 upon his arrival aboard a Philippine Airlines flight from Los Angeles, California. He was returned to the US on the next flight.

He was issued an exclusion order upon seeing his record in our centralized database,” said Port Operations Division chief Grifton Medina. “His name was immediately included in the bureau’s blacklist of undesirable aliens.”

A search of this individual revealed his offense date was 2001 against an adult and he had a couple of failure to register violations since.
