Instead of contacting the McAllen Bd of Ed to voice our disgust over this, I say it would be more effective to contact TruTV and try to convince them to come out with a new show, World's Dumbest School Administrators. Apparently, this brave young lady is the only one in her class, if not the whole damn school district to get it. And she herself is of part Mexican descent.

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.
I believe you could lose your US citizenship for doing that.
Make an oath of allegiance to a foreign nation in which the oath requires you to denounce your American citizenship.

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

And Perry is courting businesses and people from CA. (beware what you ask for TX) I will be moving from PA in the future to a more conservative state, but I am not advertising it. Hopefully it will remain under the radar.

A Texas high school student was punished for refusing to salute and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.

This smells a little hoaxy to me. Is there even such a thing as a Mexican pledge of allegiance?
