Drew Rosenberg became a victim of San Francisco’s sanctuary-city policies Nov. 16, 2010. The second-year law student was riding his motorcycle in rush-hour traffic, when a car driven by an unlicensed driver made a left turn and hit him. That evening, Don Rosenberg of Westlake Village, Calif., received the phone call every parent dreads. His precious son was dead.
Then another nightmare unfolded.
As Rosenberg investigated driver Roberto Galo’s background, he discovered that San Francisco’s sanctuary-city policies have served as an enabler for dangerous drivers.
Then came the next body blow. Rosenberg asked Rep. Henry Waxman’s office to make sure Galo would be deported. Waxman aides tell me that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told them that Galo was guilty of only one crime of moral turpitude — manslaughter.
Rosenberg fears ICE is going to let Galo stay.
“It basically shows that the Obama administration is looking for reasons to allow people to stay here even if they have committed offenses that are dangerous to the public,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports tougher enforcement. In an attempt to protect illegal immigrants, the administration is “bending over backward to find ways to allow even people who’ve committed dangerous traffic offenses to stay here when they should be deported.”
