Fliers popping up around Omaha, Nebraska are exhorting residents to alert police when they believe they have encountered an “illegal alien”, saying it is a “civic duty” to report individuals who might not be citizens.
Some residents in Omaha have been pulling the homemade flyers down, calling them hateful and offensive. “That’s stereotyping. Let’s say me for instance — I’m not illegal but others will say I must be illegal, let’s report it,” Dalila Rios told KMTV.
The anonymously posted signs deliver a blunt message to U.S. citizens. “It is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement they have broken the law.”
