Last year, the Obama administration tried to block the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia. In 1994, at age 21, Leal kidnapped, murdered and raped a 16-year-old girl named Adria Sauceda. There was never much doubt as to Leals guilt, and the administration did not oppose the execution on the grounds that Leal was innocent or even that he did not receive a fair trial. Rather, administration officials were worried that executing him would seriously jeopardize relations with Mexico.

Humberto Leal Garcia was executed in Huntsville Texas on Thursday, July 7, 2011.
I remember the day his lights were turned out.Still they have in Houston pastors wanting to end the death penalty. This only reinforces why it is still needed. Illegals get away with way too, much in Texas.
