React InstantSearch filtering results that are false or undefined

I am using React InstantSearch and have been un-successful in trying to filter my hits when trying to apply a certain filter. Some of my hits contain an isNew attribute. I have custom buttons made with the MenuConnector and when clicked, I either want to show the hits where isNew=true or isNew=false || undefined.

I can’t seem to get this to render this condition correctly and have tried the Configure connector with <Configure filters="type:Graphics AND (NOT isNew)" /> but it seems like whenever the isNew=false is in the search state/route it will still refine that even with the Configure declared.

Is there a way to have isNew=false always include the undefined hits as well? I want it to show both types of hits when the user selects the button and visits the page with this attribute declared in the route.
