Man facing deportation after failing to fix fence

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A Norcross man is facing deportation after failing to fix his fence.

According to Gwinnett County Jail records, Andrew Valle Urrea was arrested Monday following a citation for "fences and walls." A hold for immigration authorities was subsequently added to his charges.

Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said Valle Urrea previously received a "notice of violation" regarding a fence at his home on the 1300 block of Country Downs Drive in Norcross. The property's side abuts Singleton Road.

When GCPD's quality of life unit returned and issued a citation for failing to fix the fence, Ritter said, Valle Urrea did not have "any type of identification verifying who he was."

"Since verification couldn't be made, he was arrested under the citation and transported to jail," Ritter said. "If he had a valid form of ID he would not have been arrested."

Though he has since posted the $324 bond for the citation, Valle Guerra is being held for immigration officials, jail records show.

Under the 287(g) program which Gwinnett participates in, jail officials may check the immigration status of anyone arrested in the county, and subsequently turn over illegal citizens to federal officials once local charges are adjudicated.

the people are starting to wake up and report these things. The ACLU can't stop this either.

Are you kidding me? This is Gwinnett County. There are at least five more ready and willing to happily take his place.

And even after they deport him he'll likely be back within a year or less as Metro Atlanta is the drug, gun and human smuggling and distribution capital of the Eastern U.S.

Such hate filled responses sadden me. This man is probably here illegally, but that does not make him a drug dealer or gun smuggler. More likely he came here to protect himself against the terrible gangs in Mexico and to work hard to make a living for himself and his family.

One crime more often than not leads to another. All criminals have to start from somewhere. When you get away (for years) being here illegally, then one often has the mindset of entitlement and that they can keep breaking laws.

BTW, your blind compassion saddens most American citizens. It's people like you that are part of the problem. Folks like you are hypocrits that obviously benefit from illeglas the most. Why do you hate rules and laws so much?

Granted, but by the same token bank robbers are only trying to support their families by breaking a pesky little teensey law. After the illegal entry they all too often steal from the rest of us via free education for their anchor kids, WIC payments, free medical care at emergency rooms, underground cash basis (untaxed) economy, rising uninsured motorist premiums, criminal justice system costs, etc.

"Such hate filled responses sadden me."

You try sneaking into someone else's country without permission and using up all of their financial resources and stealing their jobs and see what kind of warm welcome you get.

Heck, you sneak into Mexico with no money and they'll throw you under the jail, a jail where they will be very few meals and many, many beatings by the people who run it (if you "sneak" into Mexico and you've got enough money to grease the palms of the local authorities you'll be okay in that corrupt shell of a country).

Terrible gangs in Mexico?

You mean the same terrible Mexican (and Latin American) gangs that have overrun Gwinnett, DeKalb and Cobb Counties?

You mean the same terrible Mexican (and Latin American) gangs that have turned Metro Atlanta (most notably Gwinnett County) into the drug smuggling, gun smuggling, human smuggling and gangbanging capital of the entire Eastern North American continent?

You mean the same Mexican (and Latin American) gangs that have overrun Gwinnett County and filled our jails and crowded our justice system here in North Georgia to the point where they are almost non-functional?

Are those the terrible gangs in Mexico that you are talking about, RosieW?

Don't tell me that the country which put a man on the moon can't build a fence on its southern border to keep illegal aliens out. We don't have a fence on the southern border because Democrats see these illegals as future voters and Republicans love the checks from the growers and chicken pluckers who love the unending supply of below market labor. Keep voting them out until we get someone who will build the fence. Mitt Romney has said time and again he will build the fence. He has my vote because we know Obama won't.

Who do you think is going to build that fence? I don't hear any conservative, America-loving folks volunteering.

Not to mention that they also come via whatcha call them vehicles, boats, tunnels, etc., but why let reality get in the way. Even if we did build a wall, good staunch conservatives wouldn’t want to pay for it (taxes) – they’d rather borrow the money from China and let the grandkids pay it back. I’ve always found that to get rid of rodents, yes, get a cat, but first remove access to the cheese.

Conservatives are the most gainfully employed group of Americans and were not hurt by the economy ... unlike the folks that voted for "hope and change".

Typical Conservatives = blue collar; business owner; tradesman; family; military;

Typical Liberals = college professor; public school teacher; community organizer; government employee; union member; single parent by choice; welfare recipient for life;

Now which type would be building anything ??????? The problem is that the federal goobermint and big business [ and with useful idiot liberals ] has encouraged illegal immigration which has driven down wages and destroyed whole categories of American craftsmen .

Please consider participating in Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful initiatives including periodic clean up days to remove graffiti, refresh common areas, and help citizens make repairs. Volunteers come from all walks of life and both political parties. www.gwinnettcb.org

I have been trying to think of an appropriate word and the only one that I can come up with is 'audacity'. It seems to me that if you are in a country illegally that you would do everything in your power to keep a low profile and not put yourself in a position where the local LE could come in contact with you. Instead, the illegals in America drive cars [ often drunk ], have loud parties, keep their abodes trashy, etc. Maybe it's not audacity, maybe it's just stupidity. Not really what we want for new citizens in either case.

@ Gwinnertr Fan: What does this comment have to do with this article? Absolutely NOTHING. Your comment has to do with this subject Connie Wiggins and her group that wants to clean up at the taxpayer expense. We have had enought of this group that caused our taxes to go up.

Referring to the first failed revision of Gwinnett trash policy that resulted in overpaying for services in ADVANCE for a DECADE no less when we didn’t ask, because of an overzealous desire to EXCEED state of GA program requirements in place at the time just because???

The same Connie Wiggins and friends are STILL at the head of a supposed NON profit, even after they put forth DEMAND letters to collect fees for trash. NOT an apology in sight, never before or since have I had the experience of a DEMAND letter for payment originating from a nonprofit. Charity pleas, yes but a DEMAND pay or else? And as a side note, did those who donated support to that group realize just how many attorneys they hired? They had more on retainer than the county itself evidenced in the court room attendance…

They should sponsor a CLEANUP of themselves in the very near future, the whitewash is again fading fast.

Blame cannot rest purely on Obama or the Conservative side. Both sides are to blame. It isn't a priority for either party. They hear us but they have, as always, their own agendas. The Conservatives in the Ga. Congress and the Governor have taken a few steps, but few and far between, just enough to give lip service to the problem and assuage their base.

The US Census Bureau: 'Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, percent, 2010 (b)' (I didn't make this up)

Cites: Ga's population is made up of 8.8% Hispanics or Latino.

Now, WHO believes that?

Not us on the streets, shopping centers, hardware stores, paintstores or gas stations, or anywhere else for that matter.

The US Census Bureau cites: Hispanics or Latinos make up 16.3% of the population nationwide.(!)

If anyone in government actually believes these figures are correct, they only need to do a quick headcount in the hospitals, schools, correctional facilities.
