A new undercover video provides a rare glimpse of the Migrant Resource Center in San Antonio, Texas. San Antonio’s Migrant Support Services reportedly does not allow illegal immigrants to record anything in the Migrant Resource Center.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Tenet Media shared a video Thursday of San Antonio’s Migrant Resource Center, which the outlet said is operated by the city and multiple non-governmental organizations. Tenet Media claimed that the San Antonio Migrant Resource Center can hold up to 600 illegal immigrants at a time and that Migrant Support Services provides illegal immigrants with rides to and from the local airport.

In a caption to Thursday’s video, Tenet Media said Migrant Support Services facilitates “the smuggling of illegals countrywide.” The outlet also claimed that the San Antonio Police Department serves as “private security” by “guarding the entrance and checking illegals wristbands.”

Tenet Media explained that the undercover video of the Migrant Resource Center was obtained by Tayler Hansen, a field reporter, who spoke with illegal immigrants regarding the Migrant Support Services’ no-recording policy.

“There is a strict no recording policy in the building,” Tenet media wrote. Tenet Media added that Migrant Support Services staff members force illegal immigrants to delete any recordings of the Migrant Resource Center and “threatens to deport / arrest them if they’re caught filming.” The outlet suggested that San Antonio’s Migrant Support Services could be trying to “hide” something by enforcing strict no-recording policies.

According to the city’s website, the Migrant Support Service’s Migrant Resource Center first opened in July 2022 in partnership with the Catholic Charities Diocese of San Antonio. The Migrant Resource Center is described as a “temporary place for migrants traveling through San Antonio.”

“The MRC is set up to receive migrants who are being directly transported from non-profit partners in border cities after they are released from U.S. Customs and Border Protection or Immigrations and Customs Enforcement custody,” the city’s website states. “San Antonio is the nearest major transportation hub to these communities.”

The Migrant Resource Center provides illegal immigrants with food and other commodities, phones and internet access, local transportation, and navigation and case management services, according to the city’s website.
