American Student Punished for Refusing to Recite Mexican Pledge

Print Friendly and PDF

A Texas high school student has filed a federal lawsuit against her school and her teachers after she was punished for refusing to salute and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.

The Thomas More Law Center filed the suit on behalf of Brenda Brinsdon alleging the McAllen Independent School District violated the 15-year-old girl’s constitutional rights when she was forced to recite the Mexican pledge and sing the Mexican national anthem.

Brinsdon, who is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and an American father, refused. She believed it was un-American to pledge a loyalty oath to another country.

Ironically, the school district has a policy that prohibits a school from compelling students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance.

    This is just insane. Why on earth would a child in a US school recite a pledge of allegiance to a foreign country. This makes me sick. Especially since I am a 20 year veteran who fought for this country and see such abuses of liberals and their communist agendas. Nothing like taking the pride out of being an American.

    • traitorhater

      These damn liberal, socialist teachers need their rears kicked to the country that they love, mexico. Now being a vet, I see why we are called a enemy by this administration. We are getting to be a stronger enemy with these socialist teachers.

      • billygoat

        Of all the places these A–Holes could show up, they are in Texas !! Why haven’t they been thrown out!! Where’s Rick Perry, on vacation with Obummer?? If I were a Texan, I would be outraged, and my kids would be going to another school until this commie was gone!! I may also be encouraged to help the commie’s pack!! This is BULL Texas, stand up and fight.Remember the Alamo!!!

        • Chicot

          Folks, history to the teachers and leaders of our country started the day they were born, they have no idea how this country was born, how and what thier ancestors went through to build and make this country strong so they could have a better life and a brighter future than they had. Now all they want to do is live day to day, never accomplish any thing to help the country or their children. They have no sense or responsibility nor respect for themselves nor the United States of America nor the constitution and freedoms of religion granted them. The don’t even respect God.

      Why would they be required to dress up as Muslims to learn about Islam too? It’s happening all over. The anti-Christ subverted our judicial and congressional sessions and took over. Ruskies are proud.

      • K

        Every one of these students’ parents should have their kids wear shirts with the American flag on them and wear a Christian Cross necklace.

        And, if the teacher(s) or School administration try to kick them out of School, all the kids should ban together and resist while singing Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, the American Flag. And then, when the parents find out what happened, the parents should all go to the school together and raise hell until the media report on this anti-American outrage.

        • Chicot

          If the media reported, you can bet it would be in a negative tone toward the parents and children, not even reaching for the truth of what was happening.

          • DefenderofTruth

            True that the liberal media would not want to report the truth. However, we do have modern technology available to us. There is also the internet, wherein we have the means and the media that will go fully public. All we have to do is use our heads, stop being negative. Let us find the plan, plan the plan then work the plan. We can take America back, back to our roots, back to God, and back to real true FREEDOM!

          A lot of it comes from the schools, they have been brain washing our kids for yrs now, this is why we are in so much trouble, Plus its how Obumma got another 4 yrs. But there is a part of me thats says good for you America thats what you get for not standing up to these Lib’s and Socialist

            That my friend is exactly the point. It is the government that wants to divide everyone. It is a fact that divided we fall. What we must remember is the flip side of that saying, the thing the government fears, what obama fears, is the FACT that “United We Stand!”

        We the people cannot do a thing, we have no leader…

        • DefenderofTruth

          we must never lose heart. One of the things that has historically made the U.S. Military one of if not the most effective fighting forces in the world is that, (unlike the soviets, the nazi’s and just about every other force we have encountered) Whereas the other nations military have trained and trusted only the leaders with knowledge of the battlefield, making it so that once you remove the officers, the lower ranking soldiers have no idea what to do. With the Corp and the Army primarily – even after the officers are incapacitated, or killed, the backbone of the Service is still able to fight, even though there may be no “defined” leader, we were always able to continue with the mission. Also, with small team tactics, every member was cross trained, so that no matter what, we could continue on mission.

          My point is this: Each & every American is a potential leader. If we would but stand together, we can fight shoulder to shoulder, fight in a peaceful manner, and go to arms if & when that becomes necessary. We are AMERICANS ! ! ! Let us NEVER forget that fact. When a leader is needed, we as Americans will find him or her, standing right next to us! We will find that the needed leader has been there all the time.

          • Whackajig

            Perhaps you are correct, but at the present time, those “leaders” are permitting America to dissolve.

          • patriotic citizen

            They are only being permitted, because we are letting them, no offense intended, but we post our thoughts, but we do not act, we complain, but take no action, Most of us are well armed and are willing to fight, but we can ban together and take this country back, if 280 Texans could hold off 5000 Mexicans for several days, I several million American’s could take this country back.

      Yeah, but they were more than likely legal immigrants that went through naturalization and knew more history about America from required courses than our graduation college liberals. We are dealing with the population of invaders that came here with the purpose of taking back what they call theirs and doing everything possible to assimilate Americans to their customs. Muslims are gaining ground through Canada now. Indian reservations are sponsoring illegal aliens for more government subsidy numbers and no one can tell who is native or not anymore due to birth record maintenance on reservations.

        They may control the curriculum, but the citizens of each school district have the power to oust out the school board and demand the firing of any school personel, put pressure on them and threaten to vote them out, or file lawsuites for going against our constitution. Mexico or illegals from Mexico have no constitutional rights here in America

        • Chicot

          Patroit, You cannot get enough citizens interested in their schools to check on what they are teaching or how they are doing it. But the firing of a teacher is almost impossible because of tenure and the unions. They will just transfer them to another area and close the book on any incident or action taken. If you don’t believe that illegals have more rights than an American citizen, just ask Obama and his administration. Just look what they did for all those 100 thousand plus prisioners in the last few days and why are they sending flyers into mexico making known all the benefits they could have just by coming here.

    As United States Citizens we acknowledge loyalty to but ONE nation, the United States. We proclaim our allegiance to the flag of but ONE nation, the United States. As far as so-called hyphenated ‘Americans’ are concerned read the words of President Theodore Roosevelt on receiving and accepting immigrants into the USA:

    “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

    That is one brave young lady !! She stood up for what she thought was right. Now it is time for the attorneys to bring the school to task.

I hear that they allow it to be said In Arabic and Now you want punish a girl for what she believes in. I support her!!! Being a Veteran who has fought and also took an Oath for this country. I have followed several post on different issues. It is time to say enough is enough. You say the Pledge of allegiance to the flag is not allowed any more. Cut the Crap!!!!!!! I am an American that will fight for what is right!! You don’t like me? Don’t Care! Don’t punish our children for what they believe in. My kids will say the pledge when they get up and learn what is true!!!!!!!!

    Our Forefathers made the Constitution for us to live by as the supreme law of the land. And that is what has been taught. Seems due to politics and other interference from different minorities we have gotten away from how things were meant to be.

    This is a form of the more radical brainwashing going on in our schools today. I wonder what the “Achieve Early College High School.” was named before it was changed to this. Probably something bad like ” Sam Houston High School” or some other “right wing” dead guy.

    What is happening in Texas. Schools who make you pledge to Mexico, girls forced to wear Burquas. It seems every day I read something about someone in Texas who has suffered un-American ways. Has their school system gone completely to the dark side? I thought Texas was the strongest bastion against the leftists of this country, a hold-out that still believed in the American dream. I am beginning to wonder.

    Well guess I would just have to tell them to K.M.A. you can recite it but I ain’t….

    McAllen is a county on the border, and you guessed it they all voted for the current Foreigner in Chief. I am very proud of this young Lady, for having the faith and conviction to appreciate this great country to an extent this president and his administration can and will never understand. She is the proud American, that this country is made of many different people with one cause, that of freedom and opportunity, not government rule and entitlements! Stick to your guns Miss, I’ll be writing my Congressmen on the morrow! God Bless!!

    If I was in Allen or that was my daughter I would be visiting a teacher and drag him or her to the river in toss them in ” tell them to swim back home and dont come back”.

  • TF Wagner

    I personally have been involved with some level of education as a student or instructor for 40+ years. I cannot imagine a teacher would require students to pledge allegiance to another country, let alone discipline a student for refusing. There’s something wrong & it is not the student. What bothers me, is that this is not the only school district where this type of behavior is going on. Yet, our children might offend someone if they recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. I was taught to respect other cultures & traditions, be respectful during their national anthem but it was not appropriate to recite another countries pledge of allegiance or to sing their national anthem.

  • seaofteamerican

    Last time I checked we are in the United States of America not the Country of Mexico. I’m a firm believer if you want to live here you have to recite our Pledge of Allegiance no one else’s and it would help if English was the first language as I had to abide by other Foreign cultures and laws as well as lingo abroad when I served in the USN. I say kudos to the student for actually taking a stand as an Individual and an American.

Absolutely Ludicrous! ~Rick Magee, FL A real Patriot !!!!

  • Pat

    If the officials/leadership of this school and it’s district have such a damn love affair with Mexico, then get your asses out of Texas and move to Mexicali. Fricking low life, two faced, butt lipped bozos. I too like other veterans did not put our lives on the line for stupid, scum bag traitors to pledge allegiance to a foreign country.

  • TEXAS DEPUTY

    A few years ago, the Brownsville, Texas school district almost lost its accreditation because of all the illegal aliens going to school there, where it is illegal to teach subjects in any language other than English! Most illegal aliens do not speak English! Why is the government spending huge amounts of money to print documents in languages other than English?! The official language of this country is English, and documents should only be printed in English! Can’t speak English, then get somebody, like an American citizen, to translate for you and learn English!…

    • http://www.facebook.com/peter.w.wieckhorst Peter W. Wieckhorst

      I agree the Offical Language of this country should be English, but if I remember correctly we do NOT have an Official Language in this country; at least not one written into law and adobted as such. Now a long time ago there was a push made to adopt an offical language that was almost succesful but it was defeated but nothing was ever established as an Offical Language, so we went on speaking English, of course some of our “cousins” in Great Britian would debate that, instead of German.

  • http://www.facebook.com/peter.w.wieckhorst Peter W. Wieckhorst

    As it reads, with such little amount of background information behind and dealing with the lead in to this story, it doesn’t make any sense. There has to be a lot more to this than is being told. Now that being said I will also state I believe that the district is Wrong in its policy of no American Pledge of Allegiance. And I don’t care how many non- american students may be in the district. This is the United States of America and if they don’t like it they can go back where they came from. I will also state on the surface from what was reported the district was also wrong in this requirement for the Mexican Pledge; thats just fine in Mexico but it doesn’t hold North of the river.

    This student has finally done what thousands and students and parents across the nation need to do. If every student and his/her parents who ever had one of these zany decisions made against them by teachers or administrators would simply file a huge lawsuit against both the school board and the teacher or administrator personally, this nonsense would soon stop.

  • MTNATIVE

    The teacher should have their credentials pulled and fired, along with the principal and possibly some school board members.

    It is a sign of the times, our teachers do not give a chit about America and they wish the students to feel the same way.

    When I taught school in North Carolina, we couldn’t even discipline the Mexicans for not standing during the Pledge of Allegiance. I didn’t think they should have to say the pledge when, obviously, it would be a lie, but showing disrespect should not have been tolerated, but the school district thought otherwise.

  • patriotic citizen

    Her dad has no nerve, or he would be demanding the firing of the teacher and principal. The citizens need to rise up and demand the school board fire them, and still sue the school and federal government, for allowing this to happen. Neither would I have allowed my child to attend that class again. The Spanish class is not supposed to be about pledging allegiance to Mexico, but learning to speak the language.

    Honestly I think the parents should get together and organize send a message and pull all their kids out of that school until those type of teachers are removed and they come into agreement what their kids will be taught. They will be more effective if they unite. We need to keep an eye on our schools and their curriculum.

  • olddew

    My family moved to Texas when I was12 years old so i’ve been here 60 years. I have never seen nor heard of such bulls–t. Maybe about 2 or 3 thousand of us should pool our beer money & drive to McAllen and pickitt the school. THINK ANYONE WOULD NOTICE?

    In response to this, I have sent the following letter to the district superintendent….

    James Ponce, Ed. D., Superintendent of Schools
    McAllen Independent School District, Texas

    Dear Mr. Ponce,

    I am highly disturbed and frankly pretty angry about the report of a
    teacher in your district requiring American Students to recite a Mexican
    Pledge of Allegiance… which of course would be treasonous. It is one
    thing to study a subject as interesting as Mexican History and Culture,
    but quite another to demand a student to make an oath of loyalty to a
    foreign nation. There are millions of Hispanics in America both legally
    and illegally. They are an integral and important member of American
    Society and are appreciated for the diverse and colorful culture,
    language, food, customs and dress that accompany them. There is nothing
    wrong with studying other cultures as part of world history or Social
    Studies. I personally speak fluent Spanish, have traveled much in
    Mexico, love the people, food, culture, language and music. There is,
    however, a very serious, troubling and illegal aspect to requiring any
    American to pledge their allegiance to a foreign nation. Believe me
    when I say that I do so with full knowledge and appreciation of what
    your teacher was probably trying to convey but carelessly over-stepped
    her bounds in doing so. I believe your teacher is completely off-base
    and has unduly pressured her students, even humiliated and penalized one
    of them for refusal to participate in an illegal and completely
    inappropriate action within her classroom. She should be severely
    censored while publicly apologizing to students, faculty, parents and
    all Americans for doing so.

    It is absolutely shameful and
    disgraceful that in a nation which so many people dream to live in
    because of her greatness, uniqueness, liberties and opportunities, we
    are seeing a unprecedented assault by those who either ignorantly but
    with good intentions, or blatantly with selfish, even evil intentions
    are attempting denigrate our great nation and all the liberties for
    which it stands. We are a REPUBLIC, a nation ruled not by a vocal
    majority (a democracy) but by the Rule of Law… Constitutional Law,
    which law is the highest law of our nation. The United States
    Constitution has been the ensign and pattern by which so many other now
    democratic nations have utilized as a design for their constitutions.
    It is a legal contract between We the People of the various United
    States and the Federal Government, which is the agent of the People.
    The Constitution limits the powers of the Federal Government and
    prevents it from illegally seizing and removing the guaranteed rights
    and liberties provisioned within the Constitution from the We the
    People.

    The Pledge of Allegiance is equally a contract, though a
    verbal one, by the People of this nation determined to uphold the laws
    of our nation, to honor and defend its’ Flag and Liberties against all
    enemies foreign or domestic and to act as a community of citizens for
    the common cause of Liberty for all. This is not just a nice little
    poem written to give us warm fuzzy feelings while reciting it. It is a
    contract. A promise. An Oath! Reciting a pledge of allegiance to any
    other nation and flag is treason and sedition. It is illegal, immoral
    and inappropriate! It does not matter where the students were born,
    what race or nationality or color they may be. If they are Americans,
    they must behave as Americans and pledge complete fidelity, loyalty and
    honor in her defense, and a willingness to do their part as a member of
    the American Community or Nation. This should be amply clear to you and
    all other intelligent, educated men and women across the United States.
    It is your duty, as an educator, as an American, to assist in
    preserving our national ideals, our pride, honor, laws, liberties and
    heritage for which millions of men and women have sacrificed, bled and
    died so we could have the equal opportunities of Liberty and Success
    according to our merits!

    It is my hope that you will correct
    your teacher, Reyna Santos, and instruct her more diligently in her
    responsibilities as a teacher and as an American invested with the duty
    of teaching our youth their Moral and Social obligations and legal
    responsibilities as American Citizens which are due their country and
    flag. As they say in your state “Don’t Mess With Texas!” Let me make it
    amply clear… “Don’t Mess With America!” We the People are not going
    to stand for nonsense and sedition in the classroom either through
    ignorance or by clear intent, nor any attempts at denigrating our
    beloved home and country. As I understand it, a lawsuit has been filed
    against your district by the family of the girl who is being punished
    for doing THE RIGHT THING. May I suggest kindly now that you do the
    right thing and stop this nonsense and get back to teaching correct
    principles of liberty and truth in your district. It will be greatly
    appreciated, and can assure you it will make you come off the hero and
    patriot to Americans all across the country with their eyes now fixed on
    your response. I leave it to you do the right thing. Best wishes and
    good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Guy L. Stephenson

  • Incredulous_one

    The real shame of this should be upon the parents and taxpayers in the schrool (sic) district where this happened. Every parent and every taxpayer need to become more involved in their local schrool districts to prevent this type of seditious behavior by district authorities. At a point in the not-too-distant past, these district officials would have been run out of town on a rail.
