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.

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.

Allison speaks with Jolene Holgate at the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women about why women of color aren't given the same resources as whites when they vanish.
