This is happening.

The University of Texas-Austin is making headlines after one of the school’s fraternities reportedly hosted a party with a “border patrol” theme. According to several outlets, those in attendance showed up to the Fiji fraternity party wearing construction gear and donned names such as, “Pablo Sanchez,” and “Jefe.”

Complex reports:

The Daily Texan adds that decorations for the party featured “painted photo cutout boards of people dressed in traditional Mexican attire.”

Fiji fraternity president Andrew Campbell claims that the party was actually just western-themed, and that partygoers made sure they were in no way offensive.

However, Fiji president Andrew Campbell described the gathering to The Daily Texan as a “western-themed party which focuses on the traditional old west.” He also insisted that members of the organization went the extra mile to make sure the event did not offend:

“We notified our chapter prior to the party via email that the theme was Western — not south of the border or anything Mexican related, Campbell said in an emailed statement. It was our intention to monitor and enforce this policy to the best of our ability.”

Campbell went on to apologize to anyone who may have been offended by the spirit of the party, noting that “It is never Texas Fiji’s intent to alienate or demean any ethnic group.”

Sounded nice. Then this alleged photo of the fraternities’ pledge rules started making its rounds:
