Mexico barred from defending man in Altoona slayings
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
The Associated Press
HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. -- The state Supreme Court is denying the Mexican government the right to appeal a death penalty case on behalf of one of its citizens.
The court has ruled to quash a motion filed by Mexico, ruling it did not have the authority to intervene because the government is not an attorney for 27-year-old Miguel Padilla. The ruling was handed down on Thursday.
The court is allowing Mr. Padilla's other appeals to continue.
Mr. Padilla has been convicted of killing three men outside a social club near Altoona in August 2005. The Mexican government's petition sought to allow Mr. Padilla to withdraw his no contest plea to an illegal weapons charge related to the shootings.

As an illegal immigrant, Mr. Padilla is not allowed to possess a weapon

The hammer falls in place in a place it doesn't usually need to.

Like usual the Mexican government shows its belief in the old adage "Where there's a Mexican there's Mexico." It only makes me wonder when I see the Mexican government try to defend a person like this! Too bad, but the hammer is in motion!

So, I am beginning to see a pattern here where mexico believes that the US is some sort of bastardized offshoot of sonora and chihuahua.
This has to stop! The US government looked the other way as illegal immigrants poured through our southern border, and now they are looking away as mexico attempts (and frankly, has been pretty damn successful) to set laws.
Enough!

It is a same but at least PA isn't putting up with their crap. The tiny illegal population is crying racial profiling here in Pittsburgh because enforcement of immigration has increased a lot in the past few years. The pro-illegal Post Gazette said in a special Diversity section (it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be) PA has the most anti-immigrant (I'm sure they accidently forgot to put illegal after immigrant) bills on the table in the US. I hope they all get passed and keep our small illegal population small.

I agree with both of you. I will also guarantee if this maggot is found guilty and sentenced to death, it will be another (unnecessary) 10 year period of appeals. They need to execute this maggot yesterday and save the court's time and taxpayers' money.

Interesting post, Brad.

It is amazing how POOR Mexico is able to afford Legal Council for a Common Criminal Murderer in this country Illegally yet unable to afford to educate and care their own citizens.

Ha I know they are more worried about a murderer in Western PA than feeding and taking care of their own people.

You crack me up. It's not that easy, because as you know Americans are held accountable for every little thing and obeying every single international law. If we were a barbaric country say like Mexico, Guatemala or some other 3rd world hell hole it would be a lot easier to get away with. As a matter of fact nobody would bat an eye.
