Following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, García-Siller took to Twitter to voice his frustration, asking the president to "stop damaging people."
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
Gun control is urgent. More lives wasted in vain. Families suffering. We are suffering. Basta!!!— Archbishop Gustavo (@ABishopGustavo) August 4, 2019
"President stop hate and racism, starting with yourself," García-Siller tweeted. "Please stop racism. Please stop hatred. Please be people of good will. Please stop fake prayer. You have cause [sic] Too much damage already, you have destroyed people lives. Stop, stop, stop. Please, please, please."
Racism leads to death. Jesus’ words and actions to life. Choose!— Archbishop Gustavo (@ABishopGustavo) August 5, 2019
