CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The Nueces County District Attorney's Office has decided not to pursue charges against the individuals involved in the posting of racially charged posters at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
The anti-immigration posters were found on various buildings a week ago, left by a self-proclaimed alt-right group, and were later removed. TAMUCC President Kelly Quintanilla released a statement condemning the posters in the following days, saying the campus "celebrates the diversity of our students and is a proud Hispanic serving institution committed to educational attainment," and that "it is disheartening but not surprising that our university was recently the target of discriminatory, racist speech."
The DA's office stated that while the contents of the flyers may be offensive, they do not threaten people or buildings, and it is therefore considered freedom of speech.
