By now, you’ve heard that Texas defied the World Court and executed a double murderer yesterday.
In all the stories about him, one thing isn’t touched upon to any great extent, if at all. Jose Medellin was an illegal immigrant from Mexico!
His parents brought him illegally across the border when he was 6 years old. Had our government secured our borders, two American citizens more than likely would still be alive today.
Instead, we had to witness the media circus over the involvement of the World Court, President Bush, and the Supreme Court, all over a man that surely deserves to die.
Let’s not forget that our nation’s lackadaisical approach to border security in the end, killed two teenage American girls. Maybe the World Court could ask our government to fulfill its Constitutional duties.
The June 1993 crime for which Medellin was condemned was chilling. According to the Texas Attorney General’s office, Pena and her 14-year-old companion, Jennifer Ertman, were walking home when they encountered a gang initiation.
Medellin and his fellow gang members sexually assaulted, beat and strangled the two girls. When their badly decomposed bodies were finally recovered, they could only be identified by dental records. Medellin was only convicted of Pena’s murder.
