Julian Castro, the mayor of San Antonio and the keynote speaker at last year’s Democratic National Convention, will be appearing at Obama’s White House event in favor of immigration reform today.
Last year I looked at what Castro had done in his three years as mayor, and found limited results, particularly in the areas of crime and education. But that hasn’t prevented Castro from being a frequent visitor to Washington:
It is not an exaggeration to say that Castro visits the White House more frequently than some top military leaders; according to White House visitor logs, Castro had visited the White House twelve times as of August 1. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey had visited eleven times.
