On the CBS News Weekend Roundup with host Allison Keyes; the CDC backed Pfizer's Covid19 booster shots for some Americans, including people 65 and older with underlying medical conditions -- but MedStar Health's infectious disease specialist Dr. Ruth Kanthula has some concerns. The CDC has also recommended that pregnant women get vaccinated amid a surge of coronavirus cases among them. CBS's Mireya Villarreal has one family's tragic story. President Biden gave his first address to the United Nations General Assembly this week, in hopes of convincing world leaders to join the U-S in fighting Covid19, climate change, and more. This was the first gathering in the U-N since the pandemic. CBS News Foreign Affairs Analyst Pamela Falk was there. There's controversy over the Biden administration's handling of the humanitarian crisis of the Southern border, where thousands of mostly Haitian migrants gathered in a tent city under a bridge in Del Rio. The president took responsibility Friday after scathing criticism from politicians and advocacy groups over images of border patrol agents using horse reins to menace Black migrants surfaced. Del Rio's Mayor says the camp has been cleared but some are still hiding. In a special report for National Hispanic Heritage Month, CBS's Lisa Mateo tells us banks are not stepping up to help finance the rapidly growing number of Latino owned businesses. On Thursday, aviation leaders testified before Congress about the record surge of incidents involving violent passengers. CBS's Errol Barnett reports. More than 13-hundred people have been killed by police officers since the murder of George Floyd.

Forty million Afghans still in the country live under the fear of their hospitals and healthcare system falling apart. Without international aid, medical supplies are running short. Since the Taliban took control of the country, the United States has led the way for other countries -  plus the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank - to stop necessary assistance from flowing into Afghanistan. As a result, doctors are left in the heartbreaking situation of doing their best to keep patients alive without proper resources. In this episode, we hear from those doctors who implore the international community to help heal Afghans rather than leaving them to die.

With Taliban militants now in control of most all of Afghanistan, thousands of civilians facing an uncertain future and possible violence have begun to flee their homes and seek refuge both internally and abroad, adding to a huge swell of previously displaced Afghans. In light of the dangers facing millions of Afghans, MPI Europe hosted an important conversation exploring Europe's possible responses to the situation in Afghanistan and in neighboring countries. Speakers including MPI Europe's Hanne Beirens and Camille Le Coz were joined by UNHCR's Aurvasi Patel and Samuel Hall's Nassim Majidi for a discussion on what European countries should prioritize to address the immediate needs of displaced populations; how can Europe start planning for longer-term assistance to countries in the region who are hosting the vast majority of Afghan refugees; the implications for partnerships with governments in the region; and what safe pathways have other countries opened in recent days to evacuate Afghans who have directly worked with European forces and other individuals at risk. Experts on this webinar also examined how European governments could best prepare to respond to a possible increase in the number of asylum seekers reaching Europe's borders in the next few months. They also discussed what lessons the migration crisis of 2015-16 can offer for European policymakers so they avoid repeating the same mistakes.

As Afghanistan falls to the Taliban, a humanitarian crisis is quickly unfolding in the country. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have been displaced, with women and girls making up 80 percent of those displaced individuals. Gayatri Patel, Vice President for External Relations at the Women's Refugee Commission, sits down to talk with us about the situation unfolding in Afghanistan, what it means for women and girls, and what we can do to help.Currently, there's an urgent need to get people out of Afghanistan due to the ongoing conflict coupled with a major drought and ongoing impacts of Covid. Additionally, there is a growing humanitarian crisis of over 500,000 people that are internally displaced—they have left their homes in an effort to flee the Taliban, or their homes have been destroyed. All border crossing stations are controlled by the Taliban, making escape routes out of the country only possible by air. This makes shelter, food, and primary health services resources that are urgently needed by those in Afghanistan. These impacts of humanitarian crises are also disproportionately felt by women and girls, who also experience lack of access to sexual and reproductive health services, lack of access to education, and increased rates of gender-based violence.Over the last twenty years, women and girls in Afghanistan have gone to school, worked, accessed critical health care, and become leaders. As the Taliban has taken over the country and Afghanistan's government has fallen, those rights have been pulled back—in fact, there are reports of increased rates of sexual violence and forced marriage, women and girls being barred from schools and workplaces, and women and girls being forced to receive permission from male relatives to leave the home.The international community must step up to support refugees from Afghanistan, without caps or quotas. The U.S. government can also ensure the safe evacuation of many women leaders by surging support for visa processing, securing routes to airports, and more. Survivors of gender-based violence, which is on the rise, need increased support. This includes medical care, psychosocial care, and assistance in finding work.LinksWomen's Refugee Commission on FacebookWomen's Refugee Commission statement on the humanitarian crisis in AfghanistanWomen's Refugee Commission Afghanistan Resource PageAdvocacy and Support toolkitCARE Action – Support Afghanistan campaignCoalition to End Violence Against Women and Girls Sign-On letterTake ActionFollow the Women's Refugee Commission on Twitter and Facebook.It's important for the administration to continue to hear how important it is to get all people at-risk in Afghanistan out of the country.

Aisha Jumaan discusses the situation in Yemen. Although the Biden administration claimed earlier this year that it would end American support for Saudi "offensive operations" in Yemen, they have recently announced that certain support functions—like providing maintenance and spare parts for the Saudi air force—will continue. But this bald-faced reversal, says Jumaan, isn't even the main issue. Yes, the Saudis are killing innocent Yemenis in air strikes and other direct attacks, but by far the biggest threat to the health and safety of Yemeni civilians today is the Saudi blockade, which continues to stop critical goods like food and medicine from getting into the country. Those who care about ending this U.S.-sponsored humanitarian crisis must forcefully oppose continued American support for the war in all its forms. Discussed on the show: "Biden "Continues to Support Saudi Aggression on the People of Yemen"" (accuracy.org) "In Yemen 'Diplomacy is Back.' What Next?" (Newsweek) "Murphy Chairs First Subcommittee Hearing on Yemen" (murphy.senate.gov) "Quiet Support for Saudis Entangles U.S. in Yemen" (The New York Times) "‘We Think the Price Is Worth It’" (FAIR) Dr. Aisha Jumaan is an epidemiologist and the founder and president of the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation.

Scott interviews Hassan El-Tayyab from the Friends Committee on National Legislation about the effort to end the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Although the Biden administration announced an end to support for “offensive operations” in Yemen, thanks to the Saudi blockade of the Hodedah port, the country is still experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. The UN has estimated that 400,000 children could starve to death in 2021—it’s entirely in the power of the U.S. government to stop it. Discussed on the show: “UN Warns 400,000 Yemeni Children May Starve To Death In 2021” (Forbes) “3/18/21 Scott Paul on the Millions of Innocent Lives at Stake in Yemen” (The Libertarian Institute) EndTheBlockade.com “Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992)” (IMDb) “Advocates and Celebrities Call for Immediate End to Saudi Blockade of Yemen” (Friends Committee On National Legislation) “What’s the one thing that Arabs, Turks and Iranians can all agree on?” (Al Monitor) Hassan El-Tayyab is a musician and peace activist, who works as the lead lobbyist on Middle East policy for the Friends Committee on National Legislation.

Don’t call it a border crisis. What’s happening at the U.S.-Mexico border — a greater number of migrants, especially unaccompanied minors, with an administration unprepared to process and shelter them all — was actually pretty predictable, said “Reveal” immigration reporter Aura Bogado. On today’s show, Kimberly Adams and Andy Uhler talk with Bogado about what’s changed between administrations and what hasn’t, and the larger economic and climate forces driving the migration each year.
