America Tamayo Sotelo is surrounded by media as she speaks on the phone to relatives in Texas, at the home of the parents of Texas death-row inmate Edgar Tamayo in Miacatlan, Mexico, Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected appeals Wednesday night for Mexican national Edgar Tamayo, clearing the way for the Texas death row inmate to be executed for the slaying of a Houston police officer 20 years ago. Secretary of State John Kerry previously asked Texas to delay Tamayo's punishment, saying it "could impact the way American citizens are treated in other countries." The State Department repeated that stance Wednesday. (AP Photo/Tony Rivera) less
