NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — Police are investigating white supremacist flyers that were posted on George Street in downtown New Brunswick on the afternoon on Dec. 6.
The flyers allege "white Americans" have a "civic duty" to report undocumented immigrants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
New Brunswick has a large population of undocumented immigrants.
Included at the bottom of the flyer is the number to the US Homeland Security Investigations tipline. Also at the bottom of the flyer is a web address to the Patriot Front, a white supremacist group.
The web address uses the words “Blood and soil,” making a reference to the Nazi slogan which was repeatedly chanted at white supremacist and Nazi rallies at Charlottesville this summer.
City officials could not immediately comment on the incident
Local residents and nearby students are still reeling from a series of bias incidents over the past several months.
In October, white supremacist recruitment flyers were posted across Rutgers University campus, as well as signs on the buses which read “Black Lives Don’t Matter.”
Then shortly before Halloween, a swastika was spray-painted on the side of a dormitory near the Brower Dining Hall.
That same month, Michael Chikandas, a microbiology professor at the food science department, was revealed to have allegedly shared dozens of anti-Semitic internet posts on his Facebook.
In November, a postal envelope containing dog excrement and covered in swastikas was left on the yard of a Jewish resident in Highland Park.
TAPinto New Brunswick is partnering with ProPublica to track hate crimes in the region. The partnership is part of a nationwide project to track and report bias incidents across the country.
