U.S. Postal inspectors are investigating postcards being sent to Hispanic-owned businesses in Milwaukee, blaming recent immigrants for the death of Katie Steinle.
According to CBS58, local Hispanic businesses along with union headquarters have received anonymous postcards in the past few weeks attacking undocumented immigrants, calling them “illegal Mexican trash.”
According to authorities, postal inspectors were brought in to assist local police with tracking down the culprits out of fears the businesses themselves could be attacked.
“I know that they are investigating to see if any ordinance or state statute has been violated and if and when that happens I have all the confidence that police will take all the right measures and hold that person accountable,” explained Alderman José Perez whose district has been hit hard with the hate campaign.
“The constituents are offended, which they should be and there’s also some fear that this may escalate,” Perez added. “We don’t want that to happen and that’s why the police is involved.”
The cards call for deportation of “illegal Mexican thieves” while referencing Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman who was accidentally shot by an undocumented immigrant in July, and whose image and name have been co-opted by anti-immigrant groups.

‘When the Supreme Court hands down the decision about Trump’s taxes – read page 185’: Maddow says of new book
The country is awaiting the ruling on whether President Donald Trump must disclose his financial information as part of New York investigations into fraud. In her Tuesday show, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow explained that she has been through Trump's niece's book from cover to cover and encouraged people to look at page 185, where Mary Trump details how she ended up speaking to the New York Times about the financial records of Trump and his father.
According to the story, Times reporter Suzanne Craig appeared at Mary Trump's door asking about the information. Mary explained that she didn't have any of the documents, but Craig suggested that their lawyer might.
Trump threatened to disown Don Jr if he joined the military: report
On MSNBC Tuesday, Rachel Maddow reported that Mary Trump's upcoming tell-all book claims that President Donald Trump threatened to disown his eldest son if he joined the military.
"Our Uncle Rob, Robert Trump, the president's younger brother, told us, quote, 'any of them could be disowned at any time,'" said Maddow. "'Donny' — meaning Donald Trump Jr. — 'was going to join the Army or some bullsh*t like that, and Donald and Ivana told him if he did, they'd disown him in a second.'"
"The president threatening to disown his son if he joined the military," added Maddow. "Casts a shadow, looms a little bit over what we understand about his bizarre relationship with the military and his perception of their — their role in his administration."
CNN’s Anderson Cooper exposes Trump’s lies on COVID deaths: He ‘doesn’t want you to know the whole story’
On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper laid into President Donald Trump for his false narratives about the coronavirus pandemic.
"New modeling from the University of Washington today forecasts 208,000 people in this country may be dead of COVID-19 by Election Day," said Cooper. "Which the president still does not seem to think is all that bad. Because he is still repeating the same falsehoods as ever about testing and mortality, which fell for a while, but is once again sadly, sickeningly, ticking up."
"We have more cases because we're doing more testing," said Trump in the clip. "We have more cases. If we did half the testing, we'd have far fewer cases but people don't view it that way. What they have to view, though, is if you look at the chart, and maybe Mike has it, but we looked at it before, if you look at the chart of deaths, deaths are way down. What we want to do is get our schools open. We want to get them open quickly, beautifully in the fall."
