There is anxious anticipation in the immigrant community that President Donald Trump may soon repeal DACA – the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy – and anger over the possible loss of DACA is being felt in the streets.

"Get out of the street!," shouted a San Antonio Police Bike Patrol Officer to a group of about 100 protesters who carried signs and banners in support of the nation's immigrants.

There were some tense minutes as immigrant rights activists and San Antonio Police bike patrol officers faced off Friday afternoon.

The San Antonio Police Department announced a new initiative Wednesday to crack down on violent crime across the city. The effort comes in response to a disturbing uptick in violent crime last year.  

SAPD investigated 151 homicides last year, a 61 percent increase from the year before. Chief William McManus says his Department is rolling out a violent crime task force, where covert units like the Homicide, Vice, Drug and Gang Units will coordinate.
