García-Siller was also vocal about the need for gun control.
Violence is escalating everywhere. The retoric and selfishness of many in power has led to destruction and pain. We rise with love , forgiveness and tenderness as we care the wounds of those innocent people affected by hatred, racism and discrimination. Enough, enough and enough— Archbishop Gustavo (@ABishopGustavo) August 4, 2019
