A deadly mass shooting committed by an illegal immigrant in Cleveland, Texas last week left five people dead, one of the victims being a young boy. According to reports there is an ongoing man-hunt to find the fugitive but the FBI still has no leads.
Authorities are offering a reward of $80,000 for the capture of the murderer, Fransisco Oropesa.
Oropesa was shooting his rifle in his yard Friday evening when the neighbors had come outside to ask the killer to stop firing the rifle so that a baby could get to sleep. Oropesa then entered the home of the victims and gunned down five of the 10 people inside the house executions style. The killer was identified from video footage at the scene and a Mexican consulate card, according to Fox News.
Furthermore, according to report there more then 250 law enforcement officers who are currently searching for Oropesa. The officers are from over a dozen different agencies and FBI Houston is now in control of receiving all updates from the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office.
“FBI Houston and other local, state, & federal agencies will not stop assisting SJSO until he is captured and justice is brought on behalf of the five victims,” they said.
“My heart is with this 8-year-old little boy. I don’t care if he was here legally. I don’t care if he was here illegally. He was in my county. Five people died in my county. And that is where my heart is. In my county, protecting my people to the best of our ability,” San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers told reporters Sunday around mid-day.
Capers additionaly said, “My main intent and focus is 100% on capturing this suspect.”
Call 1-800-CALL-FBI with tips or information that could help law enforcement lead to the arrest of the murderer, Fransisco Oropesa.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
