I mean "weak" in the same sense I mean "isn't very strongly worded." In other words, the treaty has no teeth against the state of Texas. The only obligation from the treaty is on Congress to "undertake to comply" with the ICJ (i.e. make a law) and that hasn't happened yet. The state of Texas is under no obligation until Congress does that and the federal government can't force Texas to follow a law that isn't there yet.
