Texas Tech University Investigating Alleged ‘Border Patrol’ Party with Offensive Costumes

Texas Tech University is trying to get to the bottom of racist photos that allegedly show members of a sorority preparing for a “Border Patrol” party with two women posing as immigrants with sombreros and ponchos, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The photos depict two women dressed as police officers “arresting” the posing immigrants.

The university is investigating Zeta Tau Alpha.

The sorority’s national representatives insist only one Zeta Tau Alpha member was involved and denied there was a “Border Patrol” party.

“We have already addressed the terribly insensitive decisions displayed in these photos with our member and apologize on her behalf for the offense she caused,” said Heather Kirk, director of education and communications for Zeta Tau Alpha’s national headquarters.

Ex-U.S. Attorney Alberto Gonzales is cashing in on his name.

The Texas company Drexel Metals Inc., a provider of standing seam metal roofing systems, announced Monday that Gonzales has joined its board of  directors.

“I have enjoyed working with Al while he served as a valuable consultant that helped Drexel Metals establish itself in Texas and better service the Hispanic community,” said CEO Rob Waite in a statement.

“With his significant contribution to Drexel Metals, it made sense to invite Al to join our board and we are very pleased he accepted our offer.”

Gonzales, the former Attorney General under President Bush, is a visiting professor at Texas Tech University and is president of Alberto R. Gonzales, P.C., a provider of consulting, arbitration, and mediation services.
