Oak Grove group says Hispanic immigration heat has made life in New Brighton harder


Solomon Gustavo photo • At the Oak Grove mobile home park in New Brighton, some residents claim an uptick in immigration law enforcement activity is happening because of a discriminatory tip from a manager of Oak Grove Park Properties. The management company investigated the claim. The manager accused of contacting immigration authorities, Vicki Florio, was cleared of all wrongdoing and her attorney says the discrimination claims are “blatantly false.”

Gricel Alvarez, 16, sat at the head of the table in her mobile home in Oak Grove Park, the bright light from another recent white-out, wintry morning pouring in through a large window.
