Patriotic honor students arenít the only beneficiaries of Obamaís executive order
Congressman Tom Tancredo ^ | June 20, 2012 | Congress Tom Tancredo

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 Leal’s 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. According to the administration’s brief, since Leal was a “Mexican national,” he should have been offered assistance from the Mexican consulate when first arrested. The Supreme Court rejected this argument, and Leal met his maker on July 7, 2011.

Leal’s execution immediately came to my mind when I heard Obama’s speech justifying his unconstitutional DREAM Act executive order, which will grant work permits and deportation stays to illegal immigrants who were brought here by their parents at a young age (though you can be sure there will be plenty of loopholes).

According to Obama, these “DREAMers” are really just Americans who lack paperwork:

They pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper. They were brought to this country by their parents — sometimes even as infants — and often have no idea that they’re undocumented until they apply for a job or a driver’s license, or a college scholarship.

What does this have to do with Humberto Leal Garcia? Like these “DREAMers,” Leal was brought to this country as an infant by his parents. Obama’s amnesty will grant legal status to illegal immigrants who have been convicted of two misdemeanors. Leal had graduated from an American high school and,

He brings up a very good point.But if Leal pledged allegiance to the flag and was an American in his heart and mind, why would he need to speak to Mexican consulate officials? Why did the administration try to grant him special rights not granted to Americans?

Be any of these dreamers get arrested who Obama claim are as American as everyone else,the ones from Mexico for example, would be wanting to speak to Mexican consulate officials.

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.

I take no pleasure in anyone’s death. But, there are times when the death penalty is appropriate.

Rape/brutal murder of a young girl is one.
