Morgan Hill, CA – Five Live Oak High School students’ First Amendment rights were challenged Wednesday morning when they were asked to leave school because they donned American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. Officials at the school chose not to comment on the situation, but one student said an official called the T-shirts “incendiary.”

“They said we were starting a fight, we were fuel to the fire,” said sophomore Matt Dariano.

The Morgan Hill Unified School District issued this statement: “In an attempt to foster a spirit of cultural awareness and maintain a safe and supportive school environment, the Live Oak High School administration took certain actions earlier today. The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration’s interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions.”

    How much more of this crap are Americans going to take? These Mexicans should not even be here, never mind having public funds spent on their schooling, including getting breakfast and dinner served to them.
    If American students cannot wear the flag of their country because some Mexican assistant principal is offended. He should first, get on a plane and head back to Mexico before someone really loses their temper. Enough is enough. We have patiently allowed this ethno-nationalism get out of hand and now must step forward and put an end to the coddling of illegal aliens. There are millions of Americans that are unemployed while the families of these alien kids are working and earning money they send back to Mexico. They should all follow their money back to the land they love and get out of the USA now, before things totally get out of hand.
