WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is considering its options, now that a federal judge in Texas has blocked an Obama administration order concerning transgender students in public schools. The administration had said schools have to let those students use locker rooms and bathrooms consistent with their chosen gender identity. But a judge has put that order on hold -- saying that a federal education law makes it clear that gender is defined by "biological and anatomical differences" at birth.

NEW YORK (AP) — Is Donald Trump changing course on immigration? He had earlier said he would deport people living in the country illegally, but his new campaign manager said yesterday that his policy on a "deportation force" is still "to be determined." Trump today told Fox News that he's not flip-flopping -- and that he wants to come up with a "fair but firm answer" on immigration. He says he's working with Hispanic leaders to address the issue.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department says it is reviewing nearly 15,000 previously undisclosed emails. They were recovered as part of the FBI's investigation into the handling of sensitive information that flowed through Hillary Clinton's private home server. Lawyers for the department tell a federal judge that they anticipate processing and releasing the first batch of these new emails in mid-October. That raises the prospect that the new messages could become public just before November's presidential election. The department says it does not yet know what portion of the emails is related to Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Lochte has lost his first major sponsorship since the drunken incident during the Rio Olympics that he initially described as an armed robbery. Speedo USA announced it is dropping the American swimmer. As part of the decision, Speedo says it will donate $50,000 of Lochte's fee to Save The Children to benefit needy youngsters in Brazil. Speedo says that while it had "a winning relationship" with Lochte for more than a decade, it could not condone his behavior after the end of Rio's swimming competition.

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (AP) — Warm, windy weather has led the biggest wildfire in Yellowstone National Park in northwest Wyoming to grow significantly. All of the park's main tourist facilities and roads are open today, but the fire is creeping toward a key road linking the West Entrance with the park's interior. The fire grew by nearly 10 square miles yesterday, prompting firefighters to take measures to protect nearby park facilities in case it makes a run toward Madison Junction, an area with hiking, fishing and other activities.
