Immigration battle comes to Green Valley

By Delane Cleveland,
Fox 11 News

It’s supposed to be a peaceful place for thousands to retire, but some in Green Valley say the immigration battle is hitting too close to home. The latest incident involved an SUV crashing into a house. The vehicle was full of illegal immigrants and was being chased by the Border Patrol.

The quiet town of Green Valley is supposed to be a haven for retirees who want to spend their days on the golf course or go for a relaxing jaunt across the neighborhood. But the Amato’s got a surprise last week that wasn’t described in any Green Valley real estate guides.

It happened on Tuesday, April 15 at about 5:30 in the morning when the SUV with eight illegal immigrants inside slammed into their guest bedroom. Fortunately no one in the house was hurt, but the damage caused to the Amato’s house will take three months to repair.

The incident sparked a meeting between Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, various branches of law enforcement and community leaders with the common goal of protecting Green Valley from illegal immigrants.

“There’s a concern with repeated incidents being reported in the Green Valley area that our first responders are not responding appropriately,” Giffords said. One resident at the meeting expressed his concern to Giffords and Border Patrol representatives. “It’s not safe anymore,” he said. “It’s gotten to the point where we don’t go out in the yard anymore without our .38.”

The meeting concluded with those in attendance agreeing that getting more community organizations involved and increased Border Patrols can help clean up Green Valley. The Border Patrol wants to add more agents, but say they face stiff recruiting competition from other law enforcement agencies and the military.
