FAA prevents Fox News drone from filming thousands of illegals gathered at Del Rio, TX crossing

CNN, MSNBC, and the alphabet networks have all have ignored the massive invasion of illegal aliens touched off by the Biden administration's welcome mat.  They, and their Democrat colleagues, do not want the public to see evidence of the 200,000 a month arriving.  Fox News, to its everlasting honor, is covering the invasion thoroughly and has been using drones to show the magnitude of the problem.

Until just a few hours ago.

On Tucker Carlson's top-rated program, news broke that the FAA has grounded the drone Fox was using at Del Rio to show at least 10,000 Haitians sheltering under a bridge on the U.S. side of the border:

The FAA later made an update, claiming that the Border Patrol (where? In D.C.?) requested the TFR:

I don't like the language "requests to operate" one bit, for it gives a government agency veto power over news reporting.  I presume that Fox News is fighting the order in court, but they must also make a steady stream of requests (hourly?) to operate drone flights to follow the crowds of aliens at Del Rio and elsewhere along the border.
