Velasco Elementary School In Texas Does Pledge Of Allegiance To Mexico

Bookmark and Share

This past Mexican Independence day in Texas, Velasco Elementary School Principal Sam Williams thought it would be fun to have an assembly in the school gym and recite the pledge of allegiance to Mexico. Yes, in the United States we have students standing while the pledge of allegiance to Mexico is read.

The Principal is now surprised and overwhelmed that some parents and other Americans in this country were outraged at such a demonstration.


During a short school assembly Friday, several parent volunteers read a pledge of allegiance to the Mexican flag.


At about 10 a.m. Friday, students and parents gathered in the gym for an assembly commemorating Diez y Seis de Septiembre, Sept. 16, when Mexico celebrates its independence from Spain. The school’s bilingual classes from different grade levels performed songs, Williams said. Everyone was given a small Mexican flag and a group of six or seven parents recited the pledge from a script, Williams said. The students did not recite it, he said.


“What we normally do is we stand for any pledge that’s given,” he said. “They can only relate to the U.S. pledge and the Texas pledge.”

When was the last time they rose for the pledge to Italy or Ireland or Japan or China? I'd really like to know.

The fact that 65% of the students in the school are Hispanic is telling. These people aren't here to fit in, they are here to create their own little Mexico in America, complete with pledges of allegiance to Mexico, all at the taxpayers expense.

Many parents were furious and called into radio shows complaining and the wave of outrage started.

“It’s been overwhelming,” said longtime Principal Sam Williams. “It’s been a real trying ordeal and all I can say is I deeply apologize if anyone was offended by it — and I can see that they are.”

Yeah, nothing wrong with having people pledge allegiance to another country. That's what happens when your town is overrun with people who have an agenda that you ignore. An agenda to discard America altogether.

I agree, Velasco Elementary needs to demote their principle. Letting his school be a part of the pledge of Allegiance to the Mexican Flag , thats just wrong. I wonder what our troops would think? I hope they do not find out. I'm embarrassed. This is America, people that live here sure don't mind the TAKING. I'm so glad our kids are learning about the cultures in other country's. Our families have and are fighting for our freedom. Wonder what President Bush would say. We need to write letters, President Bush, our Governor, and to our School District. KellyKay

I am really upset that anyone could think that this is ok. I am in the military in Iraq and my Marines and I are shocked and angry! This is why giving everyone their own month in which to celebrate their heritage was and is a bad idea. If you want to live in the United States of America then celebrate being an American first and your heritage second. If this country is going to continue to be successful we need to go back to how it should be. If you want to come to the United States of America you need to learn to speak, read and write the English language. We do not need to learn yours, that should be our choice not something that is forced on us. We should not be spending our tax dollars to make street signs in your language so that you can live in OUR country! If you want to say a pledge to the flag of another country then leave the United States of America and don't come back!

The principal should be fired and deported to a country that does not allow him to express his distorted beliefs. That is a slap in the face of all true Americans.
Deport any who oppose the laws of the United States.
Vote out of office all politicians who do not support the true laws of our land.

God Bless America and the troops that are fighting for our freedom.

In my opinion, you people are making to big a deal out of this. There is no official language in the US. So, therefore, if people want to speak another language, don't fuss at them. Now, I still agree with the other commentors that what happened shouldn't. But I think that all this nonsense about "firing the principal," and "this should go to court," is frivilous. This only happened once. If situations were handeled like that the first time anything happened, our nation would be at a different position than it is now. I am disturbed this happened at all but I just am glad that this more than likely won't happen again.

"this should go to court," is frivilous. This only happened once. If situations were handeled like that the first time anything happened, our nation would be at a different position than it is now.

While I am not comparing this ridiculous fiasco above to murder, I would point out that your statement of "things that only happen once should not be taken to court" is utterly ridiculous!

Under your theory, the first time someone rapes or murders they should be given a pass.

For a principal to get away with something scott free is also not the solution.

My question is that if he finds nothing wrong with what happened, what other things is he doing that he doesn't find anything wrong with, but the general population would be against? Things that may have not come to light?

As far as the pledge... Who is paying for the education system? Show a little damn respect!

To the principal.....hell, why don't you just wade the Rio Grande in the opposite direction, get down there and pass out little American flags and see how many mexicans you can find to pledge allegiance to the United States. probably the "long time principal" just hoped the idea would take off, but when it didn't he started back-peddling real fast. And this person is a "leader".....a principal. That's a stretch.

Hey, a rape or murder is serious enough to be dealed with. This situation isn't as serious. EVERYONE NEEDS TO JUST LET IT GO!! IT IS A FREE COUNTRY, AFTER ALL!

"Free Country"? Just let it go? Not serious? Hey dude, are your Parents related? Like Brother and Sister? Or your just a "Retardo, from the Barrio"?
