CoronavirusHere’s another reason to encourage everyone you know to get the shot: On the off chance a fully vaccinated person does get infected with Covid-19, they experience milder illness and are less likely to spread the virus to others, according to a CDC study. Despite that benefit — and many others — the US still isn’t on track to hit President Biden’s goal of getting 70% of adults at least one shot by July 4. Misinformation and vaccine hesitancy remain challenges, and experts say states will need to redouble their efforts to reach the target. Meanwhile, vaccines for younger age groups are on the horizon: Moderna says 5-year-olds could get the shot by fall.

ImmigrationVice President Kamala Harris is in Guatemala and Mexico this week to better understand the root causes that drive Central American migrants to the US. It’s her first foreign trip as vice president after Biden tasked her with leading efforts to stem the flow of migrants to the southern border. The Biden administration is under increasing pressure to address the situation at the border, and Harris’ visit comes as a record number of unaccompanied children crossed into the US this spring. In the region, Harris plans to meet with not just political leaders but also community leaders and entrepreneurs.What's new about Harris-led migration effortWhat's new about Harris-led migration effortWhat's new about Harris-led migration effortJUST WATCHEDWhat’s new about Harris-led migration effortReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

SCOTUSIn other immigration news, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled yesterday that the government can block immigrants with temporary protected status from applying for green cards if they entered the country unlawfully. The decision could also have implications for Dreamers unless Congress paves a permanent lawful status for those undocumented immigrants brought to the US as kids, one expert said. The high court also agreed to take up a case next term brought by three Muslim men who seek to challenge the FBI over its surveillance of their mosque. Additionally, the justices declined for now to take up a challenge to the male-only registration requirement for the military draft — meaning that even though the draft is not implemented, only men will still be required to register for the selective service.Jessica Schneider breaks down Supreme Court's green card rulingJessica Schneider breaks down Supreme Court's green card rulingdecreto green cards extranjeros trabajo residencia estados unidos trump pkg isabel morales dusa_00012508JUST WATCHEDJessica Schneider breaks down Supreme Court’s green card rulingReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Rudy GiulianiNewly obtained audio shows how former President Trump’s longtime adviser Rudy Giuliani relentlessly pressured and coaxed the Ukrainian government in 2019 to investigate baseless conspiracies about then-candidate Joe Biden. During a roughly 40-minute call, Giuliani repeatedly told a senior adviser to the Ukrainian President that the country’s leader should publicly announce investigations into possible corruption by Biden in Ukraine and into claims that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election to hurt Trump (neither assertion is true). The conversation was a precursor to Trump’s infamous call with the Ukrainian President, and both conversations became a central part of Trump’s first impeachment.CNN obtains 2019 audio of Giuliani pressuring Ukrainian officials to announce Biden probe in exchange for improved relations CNN obtains 2019 audio of Giuliani pressuring Ukrainian officials to announce Biden probe in exchange for improved relations Lead Talk Giuliani Live Jake Tapper _00020109JUST WATCHEDCNN obtains 2019 audio of Giuliani pressuring Ukrainian officials to announce Biden probe in exchange for improved relations ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Alzheimer’sFor the first time in nearly 20 years, the FDA has approved a new experimental drug for Alzheimer’s disease. The drug — aducanumab, also known as Aduhelm — is unique in that it’s intended to slow the progression of the disease in early phases and not just ease symptoms, as medications available now do. But the agency’s approval of the drug was also controversial: Study results have been mixed, and an advisory committee concluded last year that there was not enough evidence to support the treatment’s effectiveness. The drug’s hefty price tag has prompted concerns, too. Still, for those with mild cognitive impairment and their families, the drug offers some hope.FDA approves an Alzheimers drugFDA approves an Alzheimers drugFDA approves an Alzheimers drugJUST WATCHEDFDA approves an Alzheimers drugReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
