As of this morning it seems the FAA lifted the Fox Drone Ban..

Surprised it wasn't always a no-fly zone, what with drug smuggling going on. Easier to see the bad guys if they're the only ones up there. Even a Phantom can carry $thousands per trip cross border. Time to use those expensive drone blasters...

Someone in another group came up with the bright idea of just fly from the Mexican side, outside of FAA jurisdiction. LOL

Saw this and thought perhaps Louis Learner is running the FAA now?

Fox News had been flying their drone for a long period of time covering the border crisis, but suddenly the FAA halted their ability to fly there.

It's a TFR the same restrictions are for everyone no one can fly without approval I always check TFR's in my area before flying to not get in trouble just in case

Thanks dronesky you’re dead on.
Being I’ve had to start warning / editing post or just removing
them I see this can’t be discussed without political remarks so
to prevent anymore I will just close it. Guys you know better .
