Governor Dannel P. Malloy is telling members of the United Klans of America who left fliers in Milford this week that they are not welcome in Connecticut. Appearing at Milford City Hall with local officials and civil rights activists Wednesday, Malloy said ‘‘no one in their right mind’’ is asking Klan members to be in Milford. The leader of the white supremacist group said the fliers were to deter criminals who have been breaking into cars. Bradley Jenkins, imperial wizard of the Alabama-based group that is affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan, said members of the group are worried about safety in Milford. The fliers read, ‘‘Neighborhood Watch: You can sleep well tonight knowing the UKA is awake.’’
