That statement was, of course, planned. Wayne was creating a major promotional piece for his movie -- even included its 3-day shooting schedule as part of the film's production schedule (unheard of then -- or since). It was planned to appear like a giant wrap party, but the whole thing was staged.
I think one of the women with the on-camera dialogue in "Spirit..." was indeed Rosita Fernandez. Why do you think not, Alamobill? It is definitely hard to understand what they say. On the TV production, they didn't have the Hollywood movie luxury of being able to record the voice with no background sound and adding it later in the mix, so the girls sort of get overpowered.

Okay, as far as I can gather, after several listenings, this is the 'dialogue continuity' for that scene in SPIRIT OF THE ALAMO.
HILDA RAMIREZ: My name is Hilda Ramirez. My people came to San Antonio in 1804. My Great-Grandmother Contencion was a dancer in the cantina and she danced for Santa Anna's soldiers. You could say I'm following in her footsteps, because in our movie, I dance for Santa Anna's troops. Emma Hernandez, her Great-Grandfather was a blacksmith for Santa Anna's cavalry.
EMMA HERNANDEZ: I dance in the movie too.
HILDA RAMIREZ: You know, a lot of Mexicans in San Antonio, they were for the independence of Texas. My Great-Grandmother, she was one of them.
EMMA HERNANDEZ: Not in my family My Great-Grandfather Manuel, the way he saw it, even though he didn't like Santa Anna being a dictator, he was still the president of Mexico, he had to follow him. After all, Mexico was his country and he was for it. Just like now, America is our country and we are for it.
