US government requests stay in Mexican's execution

"The Obama administration took the unusual step Friday of asking the U.S. Supreme Court to stop Texas from executing a Mexican citizen convicted of raping and killing a 16-year-old girl.

The administration said the court should delay the planned July 7 execution of Humberto Leal for up to six months to give Congress time to consider legislation that would directly affect Leal's case"
