Last weekend, a number of Latino families in the Dallas/Fort Worth began receiving threatening and hate-filled letters from a yet-unidentified source.

The letters appear to be sent to families and not just individuals, with the envelopes having no return address on them, and the letters containing “threatening language” according to Garland Police.

The police say the letters have so far been only been reported in local neighborhoods, but said the FBI has been contacted just in case things escalate

One recipient said the letter she and her family received letter told them to “leave the country now” and included a number of racist and violent remarks.

For now, police are asking the public to share an information they may have about the letters or the person(s) who may be sending them by calling 972-272-TIPS.
