Castillo: Why you should care about the census citizenship question
 A pro golfer famously known for being uneasy in the spotlight once said he didn’t like answering the telephone because, “there might be someone on the other end.” Not answering the phone might be eccentric, but not answering the door is another thing altogether. Many of us don’t like a knock at the door when we&rsquo...

Juan Castillo: The glee and groans of two Austins during SXSW2018
 We’ve heard the whispers for a few years now: The bubble has burst on the Goliath of pop culture known as South by Southwest. Austin’s colossal festival isn’t as relevant as it used to be with industry leaders. The mega-brands aren’t flashing their money here like they used to. Try telling that to the locals. All they...

Castillo: Prayers won’t stop this cycle of madness

Juan Castillo: Bloated water bills. Secret hiring. This isn’t ‘fake’ news
 If you’ve ever received a faulty bill that was too high, and tried to rectify it, you know the experience is not for anyone lacking a steel will. Even if you are the unrelenting type who won’t take “no” for an answer, the task can fall somewhere between Sisyphean and Herculean. So, you can imagine how more than 7,000...

Castillo: DACA decision will define the kind of America we want to be
 There’s no getting around it, Congress will have to make a decision about DACA. The president can lead, but he must drop the nativist language that portrays undocumented immigrants as others.

Castillo: DACA decision will define the kind of America we want to be
 On immigration policy, President Trump, you can’t have it both ways and all the spaces between. Trump loves to preen that he is the master dealmaker, but one must wonder how deals ever get made when he vacillates so wildly, as he has about the fate of hundreds of thousands of young immigrants known as Dreamers. “He talks out of...

Castillo: A southern border wall remains Trump’s north star
 It’s not every day we get to watch an American president think through his policy positions in real time on live television, much less on a third-rail subject like immigration.
