- A Tulane University started uproar when they built “Trump” wall out of sandbags around their fraternity house.
- It’s a local tradition to have pledges build a wall around its property.
- The wall was torn down by the Tulane football team.
A Tulane University fraternity has caused an uproar this week after building a wall made of sandbags with the message ‘Make America Great Again and ‘Trump’ plastered across it.
Photos of the wall circulated on social media after it was erected on April 7 on the off-campus house of the university’s chapter of Kappa Alpha Order.
As part of the local chapter’s annual tradition, it has pledges build a wall around its private property each spring ahead of its ‘Old South’ formal ball, according to The Times-Picayune.
However, upset students said, this time, the wall was ‘filled with connotations of hate and ignorance.’

The wall has since been torn down by unidentified individuals alleged to be Tulane football players.
In a video posted to YouTube, individuals can be seen grabbing the sandbags and tossing them into the street while fraternity members look on, one saying ‘this is private property.’
‘These connotations most directly mocked the experiences of Latino immigrants and workers throughout our nation,‘ a post on student Ana De Santiago’s Facebook read.
‘By writing Trump in large, red letters across the “wall,” KA changed what was a tradition of building a wall into a tradition of constructing a border, symbolizing separation and xenophobia.
This issue not only affects Latinos but all other marginalized immigrant groups in this country.
