The League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC, is criticizing San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley for deciding to hire William McManus for his old job as police chief, a position he left less than a year ago.  The organization said while it believes McManus will be a great chief again, the current interim-chief Anthony Trevino would be a better choice. Henry Rodriguez, the executive director of LULAC 4383, said he disapproves of Sculley circumventing the application process which included community meetings.

Shortly before 5:00 p.m. Republican Presidential front runner Donald Trump arrived in Dallas for what his campaign has billed as his largest supporter rally yet.

Some 20,000 could show up at the American Airlines arena for the official campaign rally, though reporters at the arena say there are still a lot of empty seats.

A crowd of protesters organized by LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens, is confronting Trump outside the arena.  The protesters are drawing attention to Trump's call for deporting all illegal immigrants and building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

The local business under fire for allegedly discriminating against a lesbian couple is getting the support of a minority rights group.

The director of League of United Latin American Citizens Concilio Zapatista 4383 is siding with Sanchez Ice House, a local business that reportedly told a lesbian couple in early June that they could not kiss because it is a family establishment.

Henry Rodriguez said while the LULAC chapter supports non-discrimination issues, and stood behind the city's revised NDO, he does not believe the business discriminated against the couple.

Bexar County is exploring the feasibility of placing early voting sites on several Alamo Colleges campuses. Officials say it’s an idea that has been tried sporadically at different colleges around town, and now the local League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) wants to make the idea permanent.

The group is asking the county to look at a new way to get more young people involved in voting. LULAC spokesman Roman Peña said the group asked for its student voter project to be implemented for early voting at all of the Alamo Colleges campuses.
