UPDATES: Drone Back up and Police Flick the Finger to Biden
BREAKING: CBP announces that they will temporarily close the Del Rio port of entry and all traffic will be re routed from Del Rio to Eagle Pass, which is 57 miles to the east. This, as around 11,000 migrants are currently camped out beneath the international bridge. This is adversely affecting legal workers who live in Mexico and work in border hotels in the US as they can no longer get to work safely.
BREAKING: Our @FoxNews drone is back over the international bridge in Del Rio, where it appears the mass of migrants has expanded once again.— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 18, 2021
Stunning visuals. More than 11,000 under the bridge as of yesterday w/ more streaming in. Expect that number to be bigger today. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/phnep2MWz8
The Local Police were having none of it! Tool reporter up in their Helo!
Thank you to @TxDPS for taking us up in the chopper today while our drone was grounded by the Feds. The true scope of the situation in Del Rio is seen best from the air.— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 17, 2021
Also happy to report the FAA has cleared us to fly our drone again after FOX submitted a waiver. pic.twitter.com/ACG6IGxryL
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) instituted a two-week flight restriction over the city of Del Rio, Texas, late Thursday — preventing Fox News from operating a drone that it had been using to capture images of thousands of migrants sheltering under a bridge as they wait to be picked up by Border Patrol.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was in Del Rio Thursday night, slammed the restriction as “ridiculous” and said he had “never seen anything like that.”
“The drone footage started this morning, and people across the country were horrified, and I guess the political operatives at the Biden White House saw that and decided the last thing they want is Fox News actually reporting on what’s happening down here,” he said.
Cruz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the scene under the bridge was “the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen. Right now, as we’re speaking, there are 10,503 people under that bridge. It is packed in as a mass of humanity. The scope of it, until you see it … it just goes on and on and on. Infants, little children, people struggling enormously.”
Branco suggests what the White House plan is for these people. It might backfire, after seeing how useless the Democrats are it might remind them of the Communist regimes they fear in Latin America and may point them towards the GOP. At least Trump had a plan. Border Czar Kamala Harris is NOWHERE to be seen.
“Fox News has been at the border for 7 months now. We’ve been using the drone the entire time. It’s never been an issue. All of a sudden, in the last 24 hrs, we start showing these images at this bridge & a TFR goes up. We can no longer fly.” https://t.co/8oj46I8k3w— Nick Short (@PoliticalShort) September 17, 2021
Right now, 10,503 illegal aliens are under the Del Rio International Bridge.— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) September 17, 2021
Everyone under the bridge is there because of Joe Biden’s disastrous policies. #BidenBorderCrisis pic.twitter.com/tQFbYwzl5l
