President Donald Trump announced on social media Wednesday that he will ban transgender individuals from serving in the U.S. military. That decision is already affecting the LGBT population in San Antonio. 

Immigrant rights activists called the deaths of immigrants found in a trailer over the weekend "a senseless tragedy" at Sunday night's candlelight vigil honoring the victims.

It’s been a topsy-turvy week for the Trump White House. The administration has been dealing with the aftermath of the firing of FBI Director James Comey. If Trump thought the dismissal of Comey would shut down investigations into his campaign’s alleged connection with Russian interference in American presidential politics, then that was a miscalculation. That firing, public humiliation of Comey and the changing story told to the public about that decision only added fuel to the fire of those looking for answers.
