He was an unlicensed driver, who had entered the country illegally, though the district attorney told him that Galo had Temporary Protective Status.

He blames Newsom, who instituted a policy of not impounding cars of those who did not have a driver’s licenses. Townhall was given Rosenberg’s letter he sent to Newsom in 2013. Rosenberg said that he spoke with Newsom’s Chief of Staff at the time, Deidre Hussley, who assured him that Newsom would see the letter. Five years later, he’s still waiting. Below is an excerpt from his letter to Newsom. The full letter is posted below.. … Read the full story in Townhall.
