Would like visit and possibly relocate to Green Valley. I read there are numerous issues concerning border crossings. If true, where are the problems and is it safe for a woman to travel the area and stay overnight. What hotel would be recommended?

Green Valley is in the US, so why are you worried about border crossings? There's a border check point between Tucson and Green Valley, is that what you are referring to? GV is a very sleepy retirement community....

A year ago, there were no problems with border crossings.

In the past two weeks, there have been roughly two dozen arrests and significant enforcement activity in teh Green Valley area.

Have a family member that's in law enforcement and from what they've told me that once folks slip over the border they hightail it out of Pima County and Santa Cruz county ASAP. You might see evidence of a camp site or foot traffic on some of the hiking trails around Green Valley, but for the most part people are attempting to move through the area undetected. Where many of the border related issues happen is up in Phoenix with cartel run drop houses, cartels demanding payments, etc....

In general, that is accurate. My neighbor does some off-roading in the area and has a map of the migration trails. They stay away from residential areas.

That is, until the past two weeks when apprehensions have been in residential areas.

Several of my neighbors have commented that things have been quiet in Green Valley for the past 10 years. They said the last time that they have seen so bad was in 2009-10.

Thank you all for the replies. I actually visited Green Valley a few years ago before retiring in Lake Havasu, AZ and liked the area. My concern was based on a Green Valley resident posting in another venue about all the mayhem happening there because Green Valley was dedicating hotel rooms to the many illegals entering at the Mexican border. It appears that information may have been hyped. I trust the situation will be handled in the best way possible. Since I'm considering relocating there I think it's prudent to know what's happening. I love the history and culture there and having lived in NM for over 25+ years I'm familiar with the lifestyle. I'll be visiting in June so any additional info will be appreciated as well as a recommendation on where to stay for a couple of nights. Thank you!
