The Homeland Security Department has awarded a $145 million contract for a series of border security towers to be built along the Mexican border in Arizona.
The Homeland Security Department is back to flying drones along the country's borders more than a week after one crashed into the Pacific Ocean.
Border Patrol agents at southern Arizona checkpoints routinely violate the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens with illegal searches and other actions despite the agency's mandate that stops be limited to immigration enforcement, according to a complaint filed Wednesday.
The Homeland Security Department spent $600,000 apiece to build houses in Arizona that would have gone for less than $100,000, according to a report in the Arizona Republic that's raising questions in Congress.
The federal government is pushing back against reports that it has drones specifically designed to track firearms and cellphone signals, the latest clash of an increasingly paranoid public and an administration trying to keep its unmanned aerial systems program under wraps.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter pilot has been placed on administrative leave after a stunt during which a helicopter hovered low over a Prince William County high school football field in order to drop a homecoming invitation to a student.
Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Friel says the contact was given to EFW Inc., a government contractor from Fort Worth, Texas.
Friel says the integrated fixed towers will detect, track, identify and classify suspicious activity along the Arizona border.
