Republican investigators demanded answers Tuesday from the Federal Aviation Administration over its decision last week to impose a ban on drone flights near the Texas migrant camp that sprang up on the banks of the Rio Grande.

Kentucky Rep. James Comer and fellow Republicans on the House Oversight Committee said the ban was “totally devoid” of a justification and, given the details, it’s tough to avoid the conclusion that the FAA was trying to protect the Biden administration from embarrassing images.
