Texas Student Punished for Refusing to Swear Allegiance to Mexico


 

McAllen Independent School District in McAllen, Texas lies along the US-Mexico international border across from Reynosa, Mexico.  The school district has a policy that excuses a student from reading certain parts of the US Declaration of Independence if it is determined that the student has a conscientious objection.  Additionally, the school district has a policy that prohibits any school from forcing a student to say the American Pledge of Allegiance.

However, a 15 year old girl at Achieve Early College High School felt it was un-American to have to recite the Mexican Pledge of Allegiance and sing the Mexican national anthem as part of a class project, so she refused to do so.  The girl’s teacher, Reyna Santos then gave the girl an alternative assignment on Mexico and its independence, made her sit in class for several days and listen to the other students recite the Mexican Pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem.  In the end, the teacher still gave the girl a failing grade.

    The re-definition of our language has been practiced for years coming to this point. Tollerance has been swapped for anything goes. Look up tollerance, there are limits and its guide is moral and ethical behaviour, look where our morals and ethics are. There is no longer an actual law, law is different for those concidered above the law, for the rest of us one has to be careful is what we even imply….. It is up to those who are awake to scare the others into reality with facts, do not be discouraged, there are those who chose not to know, at least warn them, offer your resources printed on a card the web sites you use to be informed, you will not regret working to save our Nation

    Another method I use which works well is to copy something like this and print to hand out, gets folks fired up to self educate. If you know how its real easy with a couple of button clicks, get a friend to show you how’
