Incident Report: Edison, NJ

In large white letters against a navy background, the slogan on the campaign mailers made clear their objective: “MAKE EDISON GREAT AGAIN.”
Photos of two Edison, N.J., school board candidates — Jerry Shi and Falguni Patel — flanked the all-caps text, styled to mimic the “Make America Great Again” campaign posters used by President Trump.
Both Shi and Patel are of Asian descent. And both, on the fliers, have the word “DEPORT” stamped beneath their pictures.
The postcards targeting the school board candidates have been arriving in the mailboxes of Edison residents this week, just days before the town’s elections on Tuesday. They have provoked outrage for their blatant racism — and also sparked questions about how and where they originated.
