This illegal rapist/killer had no intention of ever living in his country again. He should have realized that Texas is a death penalty state.
The issue isn't the death penalty at all. The issue is if a State arrests a foreign national, should that foreign national have consular access? I'll add a caveat to save time. The legality or illegality of his status doesn't matter because that is something that is made up by the State. If tomarrow whatever country you travel to declared all Americans illegal and rounded them up, should that change their consular access privileges as opposed to when they were legal?

Also there are US citizens living in death penalty states like Texas who were not born in Texas. They may have been born in some state without a death penalty - would they expect to be given a free pass like the Mexicans who reside here expect to be given?

I think it comes down to choosing where you live. If you want to be able to rape and murder young girls and not suffer the consequences, just don't come to live in Texas.

But then the state would have to ascertain citizenship like they do now in Arizona with their new law and a lot of you open borders libs don't approve of that.
