RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Every day students in Texas public schools pledge allegiance to the flags of the United States and Texas.
But when a teacher in a Rio Grande Valley high school assigned students to stand and pledge allegiance to the Mexican flag and sing Mexico’s national anthem, one student refused.

Your link is in error. I don't care to read Pelosi again, but would enjoy the story re the student.
The link brings me to a Pelousy story on Hot Air.
http://www.wfaa.com/news/texas-news/Texas-high-school-students-say-Mexican-pledge-sing-anthem-One-refuses-134287008.html is the correct link. Todd, your link brings you to a story on Hot Air about Nancy Pelousy.
If I was there, they would have more than just one student refusing. And suing the school district as well.
Mr. Alonzo need I remind you that Texas is a state in the United States of America! Texans decided that well over 100 years ago. Support to and of the flag and nation of Mexico is an anathema to the United States. This was nothing more than a shameless attempt at multi-culturalism and the further destruction of American Exceptionalism.
OKay! Texas is in AMERICA! why would we recite the Mexican pledge! wow! I would refuse to! ha
That's just WRONG!
welll maybe bc texas was a part of mexico before we stole it from them………. seriously man have you ever actually thought about anything
I know that is was part of Mexico but Texas isnt part of Mexico anymore. it is part of the United State of America! I have one allegiance and its to the Untied States. If people want to recite the Mexican pledge they can go to Mexico.
Ed Marrero Yeah, Ed. And before Spain STOLE it from the Native American tribes, such as the North American Apaches, and farther south in present-day Mexico, the Aztecs and Mayans. At least in Texas, the citizens will ruled. You apparently have an issue with the will of the People.
Tom Mitchell Tom Mitchell i have absolutely no issue with the will of the people, i believe in it more than i believe in anything in this world. if u believed in the same thing, u would be saying at least the citizens were free do with their own life as they choose, to worhship who they wish, and to listen to whatever music or follow what ever philosophy they so chooose, and no t be saying that i have an issue with the will of the people. Now, with all due respect sir, I do not appreciate your brief retellling of every history class i have ever taken, nor do i appreciate you putting words in my mouth as to what i believe and do not believe. i find it very ignorant that you would sue a school district over being asked to recite words. they are words, just like the words in our pledge of allegiance, and ultimately they amount to nothing. it is people like you who are primitive in your thinking, if you seriously believe that any of the words said in either pledge of allegiance, should warrant anything other than the most mild case of civil disobedience. see if you knw anything about the world we believe in you would knw that the pledge of allegiance is little more than an everyday reminder from a young age of our, i guess you could say some sort of nationalistic indoctrination. further cementing the idea that our schools are more and more conditioning young people to live in the fascist society that we have grown into. to be quite honest, sir tom, im not even sure what your trying to do with what you just said, if nothing more than to remind me of what i learned when i was doing my own independent reading of the history of the world as a child
we're in america not mexico.
