Lets see now. He raped and murdered a little girl, but other than that, he’s a darned nice guy. After all, Barack Obama likes him. What better endorsement could one have?

Reuters and the rest of media that are saying We, Texas, denied him his rights to the mexican consul are fu*king LIARS.
The POS killer didn’t tell anyone he was a mexican.

0dumbo can’t have it both ways. either we ask for citizenship status or we don’t. 0dumbo says asking is profiling

Of course this happened back in 94 but the San Antonio police did NOT deny this pos consul access

Too bad he won’t suffer like that young girl did

Excellent news.

And just who are these unnamed “foreign policy experts” that predict dire consequences if the state of Texas offs this evil scumbag?

Oh, wait. Let me guess! Is it the usual assortment of UN flaks, Eurotrash hacks, and tenured leftist academics? In other words, the kind of people who get all frisky when they imagine that the “rights” of vicious killers are somehow infringed, but have no conception of justice, or mercy, or grief?

“If you kill someone in Texas...we’ll kill you back” and the bit about ‘all the other states are trying to get rid of the death penalty, when here in Texas, we have an express line’!

For Leal Garcia, Thursday is Fryday. Lets hope.
So they want to be exempt from prosecution for illegal immigration and they want to to be exempt from the death penalty because they are from Mexico. Name a law that an American citizen can break and not be prosecute or overlooked.

Supreme Court refuses stay of Texas execution

By a 5-4 vote along ideological lines, the Supreme Court has just refused to stay the execution of convicted killer Humberto Leal Garcia, a Mexican convicted of the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl in 1994. The Obama Administration, citing concerns over U.S. interests and treaty obligations, had asked the court to delay the execution, scheduled for 7 p.m. Eastern Time tonight.

Leal Garcia, 38, was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl and then bludgeoning her to death with a piece of asphalt in 1994 in Texas.

If you right-click on an image and select View Image Info (or a similar item in your browser of choice) you sometimes will see the person’s name in the file name.

In some browsers, there is no item in the contextual menu similar to View Image Info. In that case, cancel the contextual menu and drag your mouse over the image until it is highlighted. Now right-click on it and select Source or Source code, or similar. In the window that opens up, the HTML code for the image will be highlighted and the file name in that code might reveal the person’s name.

Or, right-click on the image and select Copy Image Location, then go to a text box of some sort and do a Control-V to copy the URL into the text box.

In this case, it’s Ron White, a comedian.

Thats what the Supreme Court just decided. The Feds sued to stop the execution and the SCOTUS sided with the State of Texas. There is no other court left to sue in.

He doesn't have a "right" to mexican consul anyway. From the same article:

The Vienna Convention guarantees residents of foreign countries the right to see representatives of their governments when they are arrested.

Although the U.S. government has signed the Vienna Convention, Congress has not passed a law to implement it.

Isn’t that the truth. Another 5-4 decision right down “party lines” of the nominating POTUS. One more reason that I will vote for the most conservative candidate in the primary and a ham sandwich with an R by its name in the general if need be.

Why does the Mexican government even claim as a citizen a rapist who bludgeoned his 16-year-old victim with a 35-pound piece of asphalt? They must be very proud.

He will stand before the real Supreme Court in ten minutes.

Just curious, I don't know much about this case but I'm going to assume that since this verdict has been pending since 1994 that all other avenues of appeal have proven fruitless. IOW, he's guilty and there isn't any doubt about it.
So this nonsense about not getting access to the Mexican consul is just some kind of legal shenanigans intended to circumvent the administration of justice that this scumbag so richly deserves, correct?

Just learned about the case myself today. They explained the crime in detail on the radio. Let me just say it involved sodomy and a stick with a screw protruding from it. It was a brutal killing.

By a 5-4 vote along ideological lines, the Supreme Court

The SCOTUS is an abomination.

There is no rule of law, only what a bunch of appointed for life unaccountable degenerates in black robes decree.

If they cant be unanimous on this (and it could have just as easily went the other way depending on what Kennedy had for lunch that day),if 4 of 9 will support a murderer at the request of a democrat justice department and would change their vote the other way if the request came from a GOP Justice dept, then it is a danger to the American citizen that makes the camel jockey ragheads in the middle east pale by comparison.

Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan , and Sotomayor are nothing more than marxist stooges installed by fellow travelers and confirmed by socialist crook democrats and spineless coward Republicans.

All they need is one more dependable comrade and all hell is going to break looos quite unexpectedly.

Have a Taco in hell Leal, you'll have company, the 4 douchebags who voted for you will be there one day too.
