But meanwhile the school promotes the celebration of another country's holiday. The Mexican kids are allowed to bring their country's flag and wave it around, celebrate their national holiday.

It was reported on CBS tonight that the boy was allowed to carry the flag on his bike.
Those that were offended by the flag were told, (and these are the exact words) "quote" GET OVER IT! "unquote"

When we can longer fly our flag WITH PRIDE, and no longer wear American Pins on our shoulder, because some get offended, This Country, has gone off the deep end. We as a Nation should never be embaress by our American Flag ever. When we allow others to fly their flag with such ease!

I would never remove the American flag or any US emblem showing my pride for my country.
They'ed have to arrest me first, and show me the Laws I've broken.
By then, the fight would be on!

Had this despicable story not gone viral, they would have continued to kowtow to the Mexican students. Why on earth would we want to grant amnesty to people who hold such obvious disdain for our country? If they’re offended by the U.S. flag, they should take their butts back to Mexico.

Was the ethnicity of the students ever determined who were protesting our flag? It probably was Latinos whether they were legal or not since I believe Cinco De Mayo was mentioned and how the school wanted to prevent another possible confrontation from that incident.
