And as another Mexican national was executed in Texas you can see that no treaty by itself alters US law.

The SCOTUS threw the case back since Incongruous Assembled has failed to pass any laws codifying a treaty 'obligation.'

Since Congress has not acted the state of Texas has no duty to enforce the terms of a treaty by allowing consular access for the accused killer, now executed.
