(TIMES-PICAYUNE) A wall of sandbags tagged with the words “Trump” and “Make America Great Again” at the off-campus house of the Kappa Alpha Order caused a stir at Tulane University this week.

The fraternity erects a wall around its private property every spring during the week leading up to its annual “Old South” formal ball.

Leadership in the local chapter said members added GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s name and slogan to this year’s wall as satire, said university spokesman Mike Strecker. Other Tulane students, however, expressed a mix of concern and protest over the words, which originated with immigration remarks that Trump made and that his opponents have deemed racially offensive toward Latino and Hispanic people.
