Is it rude to speak to a Mexican in English if we're in America but he's Mexican?

Of course not. As immigration activists say, "we're all immigrants", so it's no ruder to speak English to a Mexican person in the US than it is to speak English to anyone else, except people originally from England.

You can’t tell by looking at someone what passport they carry so just assume you’re dealing with another American until they tell you different.

To the contrary; what's rude is for immigrants to come to the US and make no effort to learn English.
Immigrants have to show rudimentary knowledge of the English language to qualify for citizenship. [See list.] If that Mexican cannot speak English they are making no effort to become an American citizen. They should be deported.
List of citizenship requirements:
Be at least 18 years old at the time of filing Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
Be a permanent resident (have a “Green Card”) for at least 5 years.
Show that you have lived for at least 3 months in the state or USCIS district where you apply.
Demonstrate continuous residence in the United States for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing Form N-400.
Show that you have been physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing Form N-400.
Be able to read, write, and speak basic English. NOTE.
Have a basic understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).
Be a person of good moral character.
Demonstrate an attachment to the principles and ideals of the U.S. Constitution.

When I am in Spanish speaking countries I try to speak Spanish. I admit I speak to poorly as I have on lb. Y two years of it in high school and one year of it in college and that was three decades ago but I try just the same because it is a courtesy.

No, speak your own language.
