The Republican Herald - - NATION/ WORLD -

As­sail­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump for “a cri­sis of lead­er­ship,” for­mer Obama Cabi­net mem­ber Ju­lian Cas­tro joined the 2020 pres­i­den­tial race Satur­day as the rush of Democrats mak­ing early moves to chal­lenge the in­cum­bent ac­cel­er­ates.

Cas­tro, who could end up be­ing the only Latino in what is shap­ing up to be a crowded Demo­cratic field, made im­mi­gra­tion a cen­ter­piece of his an­nounce­ment in his home­town.

Cas­tro, 44, mocked Trump for claim­ing that the U. S. faces an “in­va­sion” from Mex­ico.
