White supremacists have targeted more than 60 college campuses across the United States since last September, according to a new report.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) published data Monday that showed campuses in 28 states have had some sort of recruitment presence by white supremacist groups, ranging from rallies and demonstrations to sending fliers with racist material via fax to machines across campuses.

The groups, according to the ADL, are anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim.

"White supremacists have consciously made the decision to focus their recruitment efforts on students and have in some cases openly boasted of efforts to establish a physical presence on campus," ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt said.

"While there have been recruitment efforts in the past, never have we seen anti-Semites and white supremacists so focused on outreach to students on campus."

The ADL identified three such groups: Identity Evropa, American Vanguard, and American Renaissance. Schools targeted include Old Dominion University in Virginia, the University of Southern California Los Angeles, Central Michigan University, Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, and Texas A&M.

The head of the NAACP, meanwhile, believes the Trump administration is showing signs of easing up on protecting voter rights and keeping an eye on certain police departments.
