Why do some Mexican-Americans feel its degrading to speak Spanish?

I was born in Mexico but was raised in the USA. When I saw them acting this way it made me feel sad. If you have the apportunity to learn and it’s going to benefit you in a positive way, would you not want to learn? I know that English is first and that’s why I’ve studied hard to learn it. My theory: If they are heard speaking spanish, people will automatically think they are foreing, not American born. I’m proud to be Trilingual. I also took french in HS.
