The Defense Department's internal watchdog is investigating a $400 million border wall contract awarded to a firm that used multiple appearances on Fox News to push for the job.

Arizona is marking the 18th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with a variety of statewide memorials and ceremonies on Wednesday.

U.S. Senator Martha McSally says a construction project at an Army base in Sierra Vista is the only Arizona project affected by the use of military funding to build part of President Donald Trump's wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

A total of 127 military construction projects are being sidelined by a Pentagon decision to shift $3.6 billion to build part of President Donald Trump's border wall.

Arizona’s Republican US Senators are sponsoring legislation to protect the Pentagon from deep budget cuts.
