Gavin Newsom's paid holiday to Central America is a colossal waste of tax dollars. It serves no purpose whatsoever other than playing to the Democrat Party's uber liberal base who are more concerned with the perception of compassion rather than a grip on reality. This trip will accomplish this goal, but will not affect the life of one person or lead to any change in government policy.

Wonder if Newsom took a few cases of absentee voter applications down there?
