An offensive party at the University of Texas caused an uproar on campus but will go unpunished by the University.

The fraternity Phi Gamma Delta threw a "border patrol" themed party with students showing up in sombreros and ponchos. The party happened on Feb. 7 and on Feb. 26, 19 days later, the University announced that no rules were broken.

The party is not a first for the fraternity, which is known as Fiji. According to the Associated Press, the fraternity threw a similar party with "stereotypical Mexican clothing" in 2014. Students on campus voiced their displeasure with the decision not to punish Fiji.

“Hugely disappointed with UT’s response to the racist Fiji party earlier this month,” sophomore Diana Padilla said to USA Today College. “How can minorities hope to feel respected in an institution of higher learning when things like this go unpunished? Such a big let down by a school I love so much.”
