The Lower Granite Dam on the lower Snake River produces energy for the Bonneville Power Administration. The agency’s business model is being eroded by a changing market.

A federal judge, responding to a plan to reunify children separated at the border, said he was having second thoughts about his belief that the Trump administration was acting in good faith to comply with his orders.

The administration said the abbreviated vetting puts children at significant safety risk but is needed to meet the deadline. (Miguel Roberts/The Brownsville Herald via AP, File)
