Fox News cleared to fly after Biden FAA temporarily bans drones over bridge packed with illegal immigrants

FOX:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Thursday night initially placed a two-week flight restriction along a bridge at the Texas-Mexico border inundated with thousands of illegal immigrants, which prevented reporters from flying drones to document the crisis – but Fox News regained clearance the next day.

“We’ve learned that the FAA just implemented a two week TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions) over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX, meaning we can no longer fly our FOX drone over it to show images of the thousands of migrants. FAA says ‘special security reason,’” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted Thursday evening.

By Friday afternoon, the FAA announced that Fox News again could fly its drones in the area for the rest of the month.  read more

  2. As of yesterday now ALL air traffic is banned in this area. Biden was caught with his pants down so he thru a hissy fit, again.

  3. I could be wrong and maybe I just misunderstood what was said on a radio report but I thought they said that the FAA rescinded their reply to Fox and now ALL flights, including choppers, are banned in the area. Please correct me if I’m wrong. It doesn’t surprise me if the admin did this.

  4. Can you imagine the White House Crisis Room discussion on which scenario has worse optics; the 10s of thousands of illegal invaders in Texas or the administration weaponizing the FAA to hide them?
