  • U.S. judge orders review of TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline route
    U.S. judge orders review of TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline routeA federal judge in Montana has ordered the U.S. State Department to do a full environmental review of a revised route for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, possibly delaying its construction and dealing another setback to TransCanada Corp . For more than a decade, environmentalists, tribal groups, and ranchers have fought the $8-billion, 1,180-mile (1,900-km) pipeline that will carry heavy crude to Steele City, Nebraska, from Canada's oilsands in Alberta. U.S. District Court Judge Brian Morris ruled late on Wednesday for the Indigenous Environmental Network and other plaintiffs, ordering the review of a revised pipeline route through Nebraska to supplement one the State Department did on the original path in 2014.

    U.S., ACLU agree on plan to reunite separated immigrant familiesIn a Thursday court filing, U.S. Department of Justice lawyers said the changes would ensure an "efficient process" for reunifications, without requiring that parents removed from the United States be returned for that purpose. The plan is the second stage of government efforts to reunite 2,551 children with their parents, after they had been separated under U.S. President Donald Trump's now-abandoned "zero tolerance" policy toward illegal immigrants. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego ordered the reunifications on June 26 and must approve any reunification plan.
