Living in San Antonio, I have a unique perspective on the destructive Biden-Harris Administration’s open border policy based on my observations, experience, and interaction with illegal aliens. George Rodriguez, Conservative Talk Show Host, and I interviewed hundreds of illegal aliens at San Antonio’s Migrant Resource Center, providing public insight into international human trafficking. Over a hundred interviews are on my YouTube channel, in English closed captions documenting the migrants’ motivations, mindset, and firsthand accounts of their hazardous journey. Hyperlinked in this article are some selected short story videos.
The migrants we spoke with were highly motivated due to the Biden-Harris Administration’s open border no longer requiring VISAs. However, almost all, except for Cubans, migrants had no financial sponsorship and, in many cases, no particular U.S. destination. In addition, the migrants interviewed spoke only Spanish, were uneducated, impoverished, and lacked vocational skills making assimilation extremely challenging.
The migrants we interfaced with are economic immigrants and don’t qualify for asylum. In an unguarded and unscripted moment, Biden stated he would not deport Venezuelans, Cubans, and Nicaragua.
Most migrants were young military-age males, and some had actual military experience. The disproportionate number of males is due to the extreme hardships crossing Panama’s Darién Gap and the predation gauntlet of cartels and corrupt police. Those with military or gang experience have an advantage in coping with violence and extortion. Women were easy targets for sexual assault, robbery, and kidnapping. This isn’t a Rick Steves vacation tour.
Eagle Pass, Texas Beachhead
Trips to Eagle Pass, Texas, found the river banks littered with clothes, shoes, and backpacks. In addition, numerous abandoned pharmaceutical packets are used to treat infections, malaria, and diabetes (Metformina). This stereotypical littering behavior is exhibited daily at San Antonio’s Migrant Resource Center.
Many of the migrants, upon crossing the Rio Grande share their celebration on their smartphones with friends and relatives back home. This serves as an enticement for more to follow.
Some migrants unwisely choose to cross under the International Bridge and sometimes drown due to the river channeling around the pillars. We witnessed two young males testing fate and nearly drowning under the bridge.
Vans shuttle the migrants to a detention center for processing. When screening is complete, they are given an unsecured bond and bused to San Antonio. Due to the thousands crossing the Rio Grande daily, the commercial bus fleets have insufficient capacity to shuttle migrants from the various South Texas detention centers. As a result, moth-balled old-school and metro buses have been pressed into service to meet demand.
Due to the overwhelming volume, some migrants are sent to other detention centers for processing. One of the more outrageous interviews was a young man held for four days without processing and then transferred with a group to San Antonio and airlifted to San Diego. While in San Diego, he stayed at Mission Bay Crowne Plaza while being processed, flown back to San Antonio, and left homeless. We should have found out if he enjoyed the famous San Diego Zoo and beaches.
San Antonio Human Traffic Hub
The San Antonio Migrant Resource Center (occupancy level of 700), the former 60-year-old CPS Energy building, was sold to real estate developers who are initially from Monterrey, Mexico. The building was purchased for $5.3 million with an unheard-of $4 million cash down payment. Things that make you go, Hmmm…
Due to heavy volume, migrant overflow is boarded in 4-star hotels. Unfortunately, unsuspecting hotel customers are unaware they share a hotel with unvetted illegal migrant guests who have never been tested or quarantined for infectious diseases.
There are some interesting anomalies we did not expect. Many of the under-30 migrants had orthodontic braces. Typical of a Marxist government failing to provide housing and food but malinvest resources on orthodontics. Some migrants brought their pet dogs. To keep their dogs, they had to present the veterinarian vaccine records and have the dog quarantined for three days. Ironic the same standards are not applied to the migrants.
Many local churches and radical organizations like LULAC provide food and clothing to the migrants. When these events occur, a large crowd forms and become hyperkinetic. The organizer of the LULAC clothing drives got into a confrontation with us and threatened violence.
Outside the Migrant Center, some migrants participate in male and female prostitution, according to police and the adjacent neighborhood residents. Migrants also openly smoked marijuana. A store owner of a cell phone accessory shared with us that most of the migrants’ wreaked of weed.
Migrants shared their gratitude for financial support from the United Nations and Catholic Charities. In addition, a high-profile local leftist organization, Interfaith Welcome Committee, provides travel coordination, including air and bus tickets. FEMA grants and donations fund it.
The airport is clogged with migrants waiting for their flights. Most migrants use Southwest Airlines, which adds new meaning to Southwest’s slogan “You’re Now Free To Move About The Country.” The migrants use the Premium Lane reserved for flight crews and airport employees.
DHS Mayorkas Visits San Antonio
On August 24, 2022, DHS Director Alejandro Mayorkas met with leftist Mayor Ron Nirenberg in San Antonio without visiting the Migrant Center. Instead, they had a round table discussion on dealing with domestic violent extremists, an over-the-top gaslighting. Yet, millions of unvetted illegal aliens roam the U.S. simultaneously thanks to Mayorkas non-deportation policy.
Interview on Crowdsource the Truth
George Rodriguez and I discuss the dynamics of Biden-Harris’ open border with Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth. In recorded history, no country has promoted and funded the invasion of its own country like America.
