why do some mexican americans have accents but they can't speak spanish?

I’m Hispanic and white so don’t think I’m being racist. I just don’t get how some Latin American people talk with a heavy accent and they don’t even speak Spanish. Is this some kind of trend? I know plenty of people like this. I don’t know maybe I don’t do this because my dad is not Mexican he is from Guatemala and I guess the way they sound is different i.e. like USA English to United Kingdom English
