    San Antonio (CNN)Former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro officially announced his presidential bid in San Antonio on Saturday, beginning a campaign that will look to turn his uniquely American immigrant story into a direct repudiation of President Donald Trump.

    "When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, I'm sure she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for President of the United States of America," Castro said.

    Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, had been considering a bid for nearly two years and announced a presidential exploratory committee in December. He has long been viewed as a rising star in the Democratic Party since he first landed on the national scene by delivering the keynote speech for President Barack Obama at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

    Castro, in an interview with CNN ahead of his official presidential announcement, acknowledged that he will enter the race looking up at the cadre of other Democrats considering running for the party's nomination.

    Jim Acosta will explain live on camera that Castro has no comment, and massive numbers of Twitter users will snarkily thank Acosta for proving that you can't get a statement from a dead man.

    Did Castro say that his grandparents migrated legally or not? In that era, one would suspect they did. Half of my great grandparents came here legally and properly through Ellis Island. Like many of us.

    At least he's not a fake Hispanic like "Beto" aka Robert O'Rourke.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Except Castro has an identical twin-brother, Joaquin. In the House.

    There's a potential 'fake-factor' which may dog Julian in the Primaries. Which Castro is where(?) at any given moment.
