San Antonio Destination for Migrants

“ City officials say asylum-seeking migrants have been arriving from the border in droves after federal authorities process them. More than 198,000 migrants have passed through the city since April 2021. The city plans to use the new resource center in a former CPS Energy customer service building in the 7000 block of San Pedro Avenue as a one-stop shop to help them continue to their final destinations.

Of the 600 migrants who arrive daily in San Antonio, the city says 500 need a place to stay overnight. And while previously, many had been going straight to the airport, those who didn’t have immediate travel plans ended up milling around Travis Park downtown, where groups like the Interfaith Welcome Coalition tried to help them with food and shelter.”
