The Biden administration has banned drones from flying close to the border.
Is it because they’re protecting a secret military base? No.
Is it because it endangers aircraft? No.
Instead, the Biden administration appears to be covering up a massive failure at the southern border.
They claim that the border is under control.
But these images captured from drones show us otherwise.
Here are the images that the Biden administration does NOT want you to see!
A picture is worth more than a thousand words!
BREAKING: Our drone is back over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX. Per source, the number of migrants waiting to be processed has now swelled to approx 8,200. It was 4,000 yesterday AM. Doubled in one day. BP overwhelmed, & I’m told situation is “out of control” @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/ThJJJ0JWCT

10,503 illegal aliens are under this bridge tonight because Joe Biden made a political decision to cancel deportation flights to Haiti.

We won't let the FAA control the news you get. Watch this video and see how @faanews tried to shut down our newsgathering on the southern border. That can't happen. Our own @BillFOXLA will be back with us on @FoxNews tomorrow at 8pm ET. pic.twitter.com/4WIJCC0O4y

Here’s the irony:
It’s MORE unsafe for American security to let illegal immigrants to come into the country than it is to let a drone fly.
So what does the Biden administration do?
They banned the drones and are allowing mass migration, of course!
The New York Post reports that drones have been banned to prevent these images from going public:
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.
The FAA’s website said the temporary flight restriction (TFR) over the Del Rio Port of Entry and the International Bridge was put in place for “special security reasons,” but did not elaborate.
In a statement, the FAA said, “The Border Patrol requested the temporary flight restriction due to drones interfering with law enforcement flights on the border. As with any temporary flight restriction, media is able to call the FAA to make requests to operate in the area.”
Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin told Tucker Carlson on Thursday night that he found the timing and location of the TFR “a little bit curious.”
“I just want to point out, Fox News has been at the border for the better part of seven months now,” Melugin said. “We’ve been using the drone the entire time. It’s never been an issue. All of a sudden, the last 24 hours, we start showing these images at this bridge and a TFR goes up. We can no longer fly.”
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.”
Fox News has reported that most of the migrants who wait under the bridge are Haitians and their numbers have increased from around 4,000 Wednesday morning to the number quoted by Cruz Thursday night.
“This is a man-made crisis,” the senator said. “Eight days ago, on Sept. 8, under that same bridge, there were between 700 and 1,000 people. That was what was coming a day — about 1,000, sometimes 1,100 — but it would range between 700 and 1,100.
“Then, eight days ago on Sept. 8, the Biden administration made a political decision: They announced that they were no longer going to fly deportation flights back to Haiti,” Cruz added. “Eighty-five percent of the people under there are from Haiti. They’re fleeing from Haiti … There were about 900 Haitians who were getting ready to board the flights when the political operatives in Washington canceled the flights.
“Well, what happened?” the Texas Republican asked. “Those 900 people, they all pulled out their cellphones and they emailed their friends and they emailed their families and they texted their friends and their families. That was eight days ago … eight days later, and 700 people have grown to 10,500 because the word has gone out: If you’re from Haiti, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have said, ‘We have open borders, come to Del Rio and they will let you in.’”
But that’s not the worst of Biden’s hypocrisy.
You see, Biden will force any business with 100+ employees to require weekly tests or a vaccine.
There are NO vaccine requirements for people coming into the country!
Isn’t that a COVID superspreader?!
"Vaccines are required for people at a business with more than 100 people. It is not a requirement for migrants at the border. Why?"
Psaki: "That's correct"

NEW: 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.

If the Biden regime truly wanted to get COVID under control, they would require vaccines for anyone attempting to enter the country illegally.
In fact, they would STOP illegal immigration.
But they haven’t.
According to the Daily Mail:
The United States is now requiring all new immigrants applying for permanent residency to be vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of their immigration medical examination, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced on Tuesday.
However, the new rule will not apply to migrants crossing the southern border illegally.
Anyone crossing the border has had the option to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at various patrol sites since early August, but it will still be on a voluntary basis and no one will need to show proof of vaccination to enter the country.
In a statement about the new mandate, which will be effective October 1, the USCIS wrote that anyone ‘applying to become a lawful permanent resident, and other applicants as deemed necessary, must undergo an immigration medical examination to show they are free from any conditions that would render them inadmissible under the health-related grounds.’
Most immigrants seeking a green card will be subject to the vaccine mandate, including asylum seekers, refugees and migrants adjusting their status to permanent residence. Those applying for temporary residency will only be subject to the mandate in certain cases, the USCIS states.
Migrants seeking asylum or refugee status from within the US will not be required to have the shot, unless they seek an ‘adjustment of status’ – the department’s phrase to describe applying for a green card.
That application in itself can take years. The I-693 form must be submitted within 60 days of its completion, but it does not have to be submitted at the start of the adjustment of status application process.
That means an applicant could hold off on getting their vaccine while waiting to be called for an interview, or asked to provide a piece of evidence supporting their claim.
It also means that any asylum seeker or refugee who does seek to become a permanent resident would potentially not have to comply with the vaccine requirement for a lengthy period of time after their initial arrival in the US.
Adults caught crossing the southern border illegally are immediately returned to Mexico, as part of a Trump-era policy continued by the Biden administration.
Families with children are allowed to enter the US and can begin an asylum application after being processed.
Anyone seeking permanent citizenship must visit a doctor designated by the USCIS as a ‘civil surgeon’ eligible to conduct the immigration medical examination and sign Form I-693, or a Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record.
The Covid-19 vaccination will be added to the CDC’s list of shots required to complete the examination, which also includes varicella, the flu, pneumococcal pneumonia, rotavirus, Hepatitis A, meningococcal disease.
It is clear that Biden doesn’t actually want what’s best for the American people.
Rather, it appears that he’s too focused on playing politics.
2024 cannot come soon enough!
