Man Whose Son Killed by Illegal Immigrant 'Furious' Over California's Sanctuary State Status

A California man whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant is taking action against California sanctuary city law.

Don Rosenberg's son, Drew, was killed while riding his motorcycle in San Francisco in 2010 by a Honduran national in the U.S. illegally.

The suspect, Roberto Galo, was deported three years later after serving six months in jail for misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

San Francisco is a sanctuary city, meaning local authorities limit their cooperation with federal officials who seek to enforce immigration law.

A piece of legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in October making California a sanctuary state took effect on Monday.

“It's not just outrageous what they're doing, it's illegal,” Rosenberg said.

Rosenberg last year penned an op-ed for Independent Journal Review detailing the process he has undertaken with the U.S. Department of Justice — one which includes a lawsuit of the agency backed by the Immigration Reform Law Institute.

“The list of the dead and other victims goes on and on,” he charged. “Why would public officials whose duty is to protect the citizens who elected or employ them put an illegal alien felon's well-being above that of the law abiding?”

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning, Rosenberg encouraged viewers to voice opposition to SB 54, the legislation approving California's designation as a sanctuary state.

“We welcome help from all over the country, because whatever starts in California ends up going across the nation,” Rosenberg said. “So if we can defeat it here, it'll be a lot harder for it to take hold someplace else.”
