Photos and video circulating on Facebook today show flyers in plastic bags with rocks included were being distributed around North Arlington near Margaret Drive and Lamar High School.

Facebook user Ben Franklin posted a photo of the flyer that reads "Keep America American" and calls on people to report undocumented immigrants to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Franklin posted a video from his dashboard camera of two men after they allegedly distributed the material, according to the post comments.

Sergeant Karen Standback from the Arlington Police Department said the department has been made aware of the social media posting and is investigating the claim.

The flyer advertises the website bloodandsoil.org, which belongs to the group Patriot Front. According to the site, the group's mission is to "return to the traditions and virtues of our [American] forefathers."

The term "blood and soil" dates back to philosophies supported by the Nazi Party in Germany in the 1920s.
