    An eviction moratorium is in place blocking evictions, but advocates and lawyers our sister station KGO-TV talked with say there are many exceptions and people are still being evicted.

    Elijah and Elias are six-month-old twins who, along with their mom Rosana Sastrami, were living out of a car shortly after they were evicted from their home in mid-July, during the midst of the pandemic.

    Her eviction papers state she was fired for substandard performance and denied her claims of harassment and discrimination.

    Sastrami has been on unemployment but has been unable to secure housing without a job, denied at Bay Area shelters, and at one time running through money staying at hotels.

    Our sister station KGO-TV reached out to the mobile home park and didn't receive a response.
