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.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
