Chicago bishop says he was victim of racial profiling

Catholic World News - May 13, 2010

At a May 12 interfaith press conference denouncing new Arizona immigration legislation, a Chicago auxiliary bishop said that he was recently a victim of racial profiling. Bishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller recounted that he was questioned for a long time at Midway International Airport after he returned from a trip to Mexico, where he was born.

“I am thankful for being an American, and I am concerned for the people that don’t have the support system that I have,” he added.
