You’d think the Greek world would’ve learned to avoid controversially themed parties by now, alas…

University of Texas fraternity under fire for ‘border patrol’ party

A fraternity at the University of Texas at Austin is taking heat for hosting an alleged “border patrol” party at its house within spitting distance of the university campus on Saturday night.

Partygoers attending a bash hosted by UT’s chapter of the national Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, known as Texas Fiji, wore ponchos, sombreros and construction gear while others wore military camouflage outfits near photo cutout boards of people in traditional Mexican garb, a bar painted to look like a Mexican flag and a giant cutout of Patrón tequila, The Daily Texan reported.

Some party guests donned construction hard hats with the word “Jefe” and name “Pablo Sanchez” scribbled on them. Guests told the student paper that the party’s theme was communicated as “border patrol” by the fraternity.

Andrew Campbell, the chapter’s president, denied that the organization intended to throw a border patrol-themed party, telling the school’s newspaper that the bash was supposed to be a “Western-themed party which focuses on the traditional Old West.”
