ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - Residents of a North Texas neighborhood are upset after racist flyers targeting illegal immigrants were left in their yards.

The flyers appear to belong to a known white nationalist group, according to reports. They read in part, "keep America American" and urge people to report the illegal immigrants or criminals. 

Jay Hetler and others on Curtis Circle near Lamar High School tell NBC5 they've never seen something like this in their neighborhood.

The flyers were inside plastic sandwich bags weighed down by rocks and left in the front yards of dozens of houses.

Many neighbors say they feel it's a waste of time to leave derogatory flyers like those, and instead should focus on spreading tolerance.

Arlington Police are investigating.
