Bush Administration Fights to Overturn Death Sentence of Gang Rapist/Murderer from Mexico

This shocking case needs more attention: The Supreme Court will hear a case this week about gang member and illegal alien Jose Medellin, who was convicted of the rape and murder of two girls, ages 14 and 16, 13 years ago and put onto death row. Heck, he even bragged about it and confessed when caught a few days after the fact.

What's the problem? Medellin and his five accomplices were not advised of their right to contact the Mexican consulate for assistance, and the Bush administration has joined forces with Medellin's law team to argue that the death penalty should be overturned.

Check out this video from the Glenn Beck Show last night for more details.

This is an attempt to put Mexican and international law in effect here in the United States, and it's preposterous. In the video, Jerome Corsi claims this is one more step toward the North American Union. Is he right? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but nevertheless, this case has terrible implications for our national sovereignty.

Speaking of which, there's another critical national sovereignty issue that deserves more press: the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which is in committee and on the fast track to U.S. ratification. Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media has been following the story. Click here, here and here for details, and then contact your senator to let him know what you think.

What the Hell is the matter with him? I lost most of my respect for GWB after his lax immigration stance. This case is sealing it.

As much as I hate to admit it, the W Administration is actually correct in trying to overturn this case. Article VI of the Constitution trumps the state courts here, and I'm not happy about it since Texas is my home state.
Article. VI.

All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

If the US ratified that treaty, then the case must be retried, with the non-dryback getting assistance from the mezzican government.

One of the readers of my blog pointed it out to me. Marie spoiled my day with that one.
