Hispanic businesses in Milwaukee receive postcards blaming ‘Mexican trash’ for death of Kate Steinle

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.

"That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.

"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."

"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.

"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
