The sign comes after a banner that read, “We must kill the white trash who hire illegal aliens,” was put up in October on a building on Church Street in downtown Atkinson.

The man who owned the building, Donald Sullivan, ran for mayor of Atkinson in 2007. According to voting records, he lost the election, receiving only nine votes.

There’s no word yet on who put up the new sign or if it was a response to Sullivan’s banner.
