The Obama administration is taking the unusual step of asking the U.S. Supreme Court to stop Texas from executing a Mexican citizen who was convicted and sentenced to die for the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl.
The administration is asking the court to delay the July 7 execution of Humberto Leal, 38, for as long as six months to give Congress time to consider legislation that would directly affect Leal's case.

What is wrong with this bunch in power?
Hey Texans, you paying attention? Get on the horn to the governor and tell him to let the execution go forward!
NEXT HEADLINE: “Texas to White House: Kiss My Grits!”
Kill his murdering ass and ship the corpse to the Mexican embassy freight collect.
I'm there now. All I see is the communists have taken over the entire Administration and has elected King Obama as dictator. There is a slight chance the House can or will do anything to slow down the empire change but more hope on 2012. King Obama army is huge since he has bought at least l/3 of the voters and the rest are so ignorant we might have a real hard time.
Like this morning?
Hey, Obama and Holder,how many fingers am I sticking up?
(Hint: its more than none and less than two.)
Right on. Do it now.
THIS IS OLD NEWS. This is a repeat article.
This is the action taken last week, and has already been responded to at the court by the Texas AG’s office.
P-ss on his victim, that’s what this is really about, p-ss on his victim, the shite heads rule.
I don't recognize it now.
Every day, I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone.
Actually Perry can’t do anything on his own.but if he could he would move the execution up. The faster we get rid of the murdering pos illegal the better the world will be
Notice NO WHERE in any reports does it say the scum told the police he was a mexican national.
So notice that today 0dumbo doesn’t want police to ask anyone if they are here legally
but in 1994 how would the police know he was not a citizen if he didn’t tell them?
What he did and admitted to is so horrendous I think it is a crime he has lived for 17 more years
And Texas, being Texas, will say NO and execute the scum anyway.
Good for Texas.
Heh! Has anyone seen any leftists losers screaming, “Separation of government branches,” or, “States rights,” yet.
Those people believe that the three branches of government are the President, the House, and the Senate (Chuck U Schumer).
I cannot imagine what the parents/family of the victim must be going through right now. They live through the horrible death of their child, the court case where they know what torment/torture/fear/agony she endured before taking her last breath and now the government trying to stop justice for being served for their girl. Based on what? Because he was illegal and couldn’t understand the language or what rights he had? He seemed to understand that smashing a huge block of concrete on a girl’s head would kill her. This is infuriating to me!
Is there anyone in this Administration who has ever read the Constitution? Anyone? What part of 'ex post facto' do they not get?
You would think Hispanic Americans would be up in arms over this.
The poor kid this piece of crap raped and murdered was Hispanic.
The request for a stay was rejected by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.
Then, I'd arrange for the guards to take a break when he was out of his cell.
If this crap keeps up, Jeffrey Dahmer style executions are going to become a lot more common.
How abut we all call the white house or
#askobama on twitter?
ZERO is having a twitter townhall today.
“AMERICANS to White House: Kiss My Grits!
And yesterday Mexico mentioned that they’d like to extradite and subpoena Obama Admin people who were involved in Gunrunner and Fast and Furious. No connection here. None.
This is OBozo playing the political game against those who believe in the law, as its written, and not as the left chooses to interpret it.
LOL! Yeah, that , too, but Texans are hard to beat when it comes to telling FedGov to stick it where the sun don’t shine.
The poor kid this piece of crap raped and murdered was Hispanic.
Any verification that she, too, was an illegal immigrant?
I wonder how much obama getting involved influenced that decision. (I suspect it may have sealed the deal)
I hope it is the one in the middle of your hand, palm facing you.
This POS lived here since he was 2 years old thanks to his illegle parents. He can speak English just fine and doubtful he considered himself a Mexican national. We could always just send him back via the back ramp of a C130 at about 16k feet. How his native soil welcomes him back would be his problem.
I truly don’t know how parents cope with something like this. If it had been my child, I will confess honestly that I think I would have to be institutionalized. The knowledge of my child being raped, bitten, a stick shoved into her, and smashed in the head would be the end of me. Personally, I would volunteer to pull the lever, push the button... whatever is done to end it for this guy.
This is not breaking news. It is from last Friday, and Texas has already responded with a big FUBO.
The dude is going to be executed tomorrow. Good riddance.
They are corrupt and compromised.
My bet is Mexican political back channels are testing this "bunch". "Halt this execution or your illegal gun operation into Mexico will become quite a problem for you.."
Mexico gets this; Mexico has got him. Bam is going to push for it but go "aww shucks; Sorry Mexico; I tried, its those racist American Judges that stifled this; NOT ME!!"
Any takers on this theory?
Humberto Leal Garcia, right, is shown with anti-death penalty advocate Germain Corbin is shown in this June 6, 2011 photo. Leal is set to be executed in Texas for the 1994 kidnapping and rape of a 16-year-old girl. (Cortesia/Notimex/Newscom)
July 6, 2011 -- ABC News: Mexican National Set for Execution in Texas Despite Obama's Pleas for Delay ...."Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Attorney General Eric H. Holder praised the proposed legislation saying in a letter to Leahy it is of "fundamental importance to our ability to protect Americans overseas and preserve some of our most vital international relationships." .....
Long silent family of victim speaks ....."The South San newspaper is folded to reveal a specific ad on a page's bottom corner. "In memory of Adria Sauceda," it begins. Her dates of birth and death Jan. 27, 1978, and May 21, 1994 are in small type near the end.
"I look at that every day," Sauceda, 64, said as his fingers smoothed the pages. "Her friends paid to have that put in the paper. She had so many friends."....
Does it make a difference?
A raping murder should be excuted regardless of the citizenship status of his victim - or his.
Good theory. I think this bunch and Mexico knew about the illegal gun running. That way Mexico could sue United States and Obama could use that towards gun sales here. Mexico gets money and this “bunch” could get stricter gun laws here. Any takers on that theory?
My point ZULU must have been lost on you.
If he lived here, he doesn't go whining to another country when he does the crime.
This picture creeps me out.
Interesting little note: as per some old Sup. Ct. precedent, treaties that are not self-executing do not bind the states until Congress enacts legislation to put the treaty into effect. See, e.g., Whitney v. Robertson, 124 U.S. 190, 194 (1888).
In this case, notwithstanding that the treaty in question (which I do not know the name of off the top of my head) apparently does provide that the nationals of signatories are to be provided with consular assistance, the treaty itself appears - from the reports on the need to enact legislation to review alleged violations of the treaty - to not be self-executing and thus not binding on the states until and unless Congress enacts legislation making it so.
In other words, the State of Texas appears to be at liberty to ignore the provisions of this treaty until Congress has enacted legislation saying otherwise.
That means, in essence, that Obuttocks is trying to bootstrap the binding effect of the treaty by, in essence, claiming that it ought to be binding on Texas because, if you just give Congress enough time, Congress will do what it needs to do to make the treaty binding on Texas.

Obama tries to stop execution in Texas of Mexican killer
US president warns Texan authorities that execution would put America in breach of international legal obligations
President Barack Obama is attempting to block the execution in Texas on Thursday of a Mexican man because it would breach an international convention and do "irreparable harm" to US interests.
Well it does feel that way sometimes. We still have freedom to move about though and do most of our daily activities without interference.
News reports say Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru are conspiring to collude with The Anti-Defamation League, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups to infringe on US sovereignty to make laws as we see fit. The co-conspirators filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Georgia's law and are now asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case.
Nothing good has come from this plague of lawbreakers violating our borders. Illegals are a national security threat. They are conspiring to tear down democracy. Their home countries--and the US govt--- are helping them.
