BREAKING: FAA blocks Fox News from flying drones over migrant bridge in Del Rio, Texas

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin is reporting tonight that the FAA has just instituted a quasi no fly zone over the bridge where all the illegal migrants are in Del Rio, Texas, meaning Fox News can’t use their drone to take photos and videos of the migrants for at least two weeks:

Melugin writes “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”.”

He adds that Fox News “has been covering the border nonstop for almost 7 months now, we use the drone constantly, and it has never been an issue. We have reached out to the FAA to ask for clarification on why this TFR was implemented. We haven’t heard back yet. Will update if/when we do.”

Yeah, there’s nothing suspicious about this at all. Maybe I’m just too cynical and there really is some legitimate security issue that they will elaborate on…or not. But given the media attention that Melugin’s photos and reporting are getting, it sounds extremely convenient for the Biden administration to restrict the air space over the bridge, especially for drones.
