I believe the time for defunding is long overdue.

Horse sh!t.

Break the law in a foreign country and you are subject to the law of the land. The US consulate isn’t going to do anything for you except tell your family where to find you or the pieces of you that are left.

Ask Michael Fay about the strength of the American consular intervention.

Well, the U.S. is off the hook.

It was Texas that iced the dog.

Let the U.N. come complain to us about it.

there are countries in the world that allow a citizenship claim based on GRANDPARENTS birth location. Thus a criminal who family came to the us in the last century could claim foreign national status.

A US citizen abroad committing a criminal act was and is always in deep trouble.

This was a delay tactic.

For once I would LOVE to be President.

I would immediately issue an executive order. It would state that to insure we never commit such a dastardly offense again, all police officers of every jurisdiction must immediately check into the immigration status of every person the apprehend for any crime. This is to insure that we never again fail to inform a foreign national of their rights. And failure to comply with this requirement shall immediately cause Federal crime funding grants of all type to that state to cease.

Then sit back and watch the liberals heads explode as their “Sanctuary Cities” are effectively neutered!

One advantage to not increasing the debt limit is that it would probably eliminate our “contribution” to the UN.

Thank you UN for sharing your opinion. It sounds pretty serious to me. In keeping with your lofty ideals it sounds like y’all would be better off if you didn’t associate with such obvious scofflaws as you intimate. Therefore I would recommend that you immediately drum the US out of your club.

Have a nice day.

Just to clear things up for this UN twit, Texas executed the scum. As others have suggested, how about bringing a few plane loads of your blue helmet troops into East Texas and we’ll have a weekend game of Cowboys and Socialist?

We didn’t have any rights in Mexico BEFORE we wasted that creep, so what have we lost?! Claiming we should have spared him in the interest of international safety is like the pandering to the ragheads that our gubmint is doing in hopes that they won’t want to destroy us quite as much. Only one thing is for sure regarding that lethal injection in Texas on Thursday; That Mexican creep will not harm any more little girls!

The UN actually called for it, which underscores their inconsistency and malice.

The UN is attempting to undermine the sovereignty of ALL nations. It is an aspiring world dictatorship. It must be neutralized.

So what! Do something about it. I hope to God I live long enough to see an American President with the balls to tell those cess pool dwellers at the UN to go back to the hell they came from and then proceed to tear that ugly shrine to international socialism down!

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I would add one more sentence: And you have 30 days to get the hell out of New York City! Bag and baggage!

Ooops! That’s two sentences.
