1. Several Republican members of Congress have criticized the Trump administration's plan to allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to shoot down drones near airports, saying it exceeds the agency's authority. Congress authorized DHS last year to destroy drones that pose a threat of a "covered facility or asset," such as federal buildings and event likes the Super Bowl. Now, DHS is attempting to expand that list to include airports, according to a congressional staffer. In a letter to acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf,  Reps. Mike Rogers of Alabama and Sam Graves of Missouri argued that the DHS plan "goes far beyond" the authority of the agency. Supporters, however, say an anti-drone plan is sorely needed at airports after incidents like last year's shutdown of London's Gatwick Airport. - CNN
