    Texas executes Mexican after court rejects White House appea

    Texas executes Mexican after court rejects White House appeal

    By MICHAEL GRACZYK Associated Press July 7, 2011 6:46PM

    HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A Mexican national was executed Thursday for the rape-slaying of a San Antonio teenager after the U.S. Supreme Court turned down a White House-supported appeal to spare him in a death penalty case where Texas justice triumphed over international treaty concerns.

    Humberto Leal, 38, received lethal injection for the 1994 murder of Adria Sauceda. She was fatally bludgeoned with a piece of asphalt.

    Leal was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m.

    Leal moved with his family from Monterrey, Mexico, to the U.S. as a toddler. Police never told Leal following his arrest that he could seek legal assistance from the Mexican government under an international treaty and his case had prompted appeals on what it could mean for other foreigners arrested in the U.S. and for Americans detained in other countries. His appeals lawyers said such assistance would have helped his defense.

    The argument was not new. Texas, the nation’s most active death penalty state, has executed other condemned foreign nationals who raised similar challenges, most recently in 2008.

    Leal’s appeals, however, focused on legislation introduced last month in the U.S. Senate by Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy. Leahy’s measure would bring the U.S. into compliance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations provision regarding the arrests of foreign nationals and ensure court reviews for condemned foreigners to determine if the lack of consular help made a significant difference in the outcome of their cases.

    President Barack Obama’s administration took the unusual step of intervening in a state murder case when Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. last week joined Leal’s appeal in asking the high court halt the execution and give Congress at least six months to consider Leahy’s bill.

    “The legislation would give Mr. Leal an opportunity to demonstrate that with consular assistance, he likely would not have been convicted, let alone sentenced to death,

    Unfortunately, our country won't survive if we have to wait 17 years to get rid of a single murderer.

    Q. How is it determined what date a death row offender will be scheduled for execution?

    A. The judge presiding over a capital punishment case sets the date of execution for a death row offender when it appears that appeals in the case have been exhausted. When TDCJ receives a warrant of execution from the court, we add the offender's name to the list of scheduled executions, scheduling the execution on the date ordered by the court.

    I have to wonder if Perry were not considering a White House run would he have granted a stay.

    Let this be a lesson to any illegal or foreign national who comes here and commits a crime. We the American people will seek and have justice. Your immigration status will not save you and yes you will meet your fate that you deserve. Well done Texas. We need more states to do the same.
