It's an interesting states rights issue as well as a legal one. Humberto Garcia has been on Texas death row since 1994 when he was convicted of raping and killing a woman. He is a Mexican national and the president and the Secretary 'O State are citing a UN Treaty in order to try to spare his life. Governor Perry is determined to let the execution go through. Will president Barry call out the Troops to save this murderer's life and cause another Alamo standoff? The Feds don't have a case. The Supreme Court already ruled in a similar case in 2008 that states are not obligated to comply with UN treaties.
