tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  September 8, 2022 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
it is thursday, september 8, thanks for getting an early start with me. just into cnn, defense secretary lloyd austin announcing a new $675 million aid package for ukraine. austin is in germany meeting with military leaders from around the world to discuss a growing crisis in ukraine, the continued shelling near the russian held zaporizhzhia power plant. there are growing fears the fighting could trigger a nuclear
2:01 am
disaster. cnn's frederik pleitgen is joining me live from ramstein air base. what do we know about the new aid package? >> reporter: the secretary of defense made those remarks just a couple minutes ago here and you're right, it certainly comes at a really decisive time as the war is dragging on in ukraine. on the one hand the fighting around the zaporizhzhia power plant, but then also you have the ukrainians making gains in south of the country and also in the northeast of the country as well. the secretary of defense says the u.s. wants to make absolutely clear that they remain strong in their commitments to ukraine and are going to give the ukrainians what they need to succeed. he was saying that the package from the presidential drawdown is $675 million and he listed some of the main items on that new drawdown. here is what he said. >> the latest package includes more gimmlecs, howitzers,
2:02 am
artillery munitions, missiles, humvees, armored ambulances, anti-tank systems, small arms and more. >> reporter: just to translate, he means gemlr sflt which stands for guided multiple rocket launching systems which of course have been so successful for the ukrainians. the himars systems are the ones that we keep talking about here on air. of course the u.s. also has different multiple rocket launching systems on offer as well. the big question now for the u.s. is are the allies also going to remain as committed and as strong as the u.s. says it is willing to stay. there do seems to be -- there does seem to be some fatigue on the part of some allies, but certainly the message that the u.s. wants to send not just to ukraine, they are also sitting there are the secretary of defense, but also to the russians, that is the allies remain strong and committed and will give ukrainians what they
2:03 am
need to defend themselves. >> fred pleitgen, thank you so much. the state department says members of vladimir putin's administration are personally overseeing and coordinating so-called filtration camps for ukrainians. these camps are allegedly used to interrogate and forcibly transport ukrainian citizens to russia. the state department will not say whether putin himself is involved in the efforts or whether the program constitutes a war crime. >> russia as systemically used the practice of forced deportations previously and the fear and misery it evokes for people forced to live under the kremlin's control are hard to overstate. >> soma shlae melissa bell has latest for us from oig kyiv. and we're talking about adults
2:04 am
and some children moved deep into siberia? >> reporter: that's right. and ukrainians say that it is 2.5 million ukrainians that have been forcibly taken to russian territory after those filtration camps with 38,000 of those children. the state department figures are slightly less, something behind $900,000 and 1.5 million. but it gives you an idea of what has been going on the other side of the line, the one that divides this part of ukraine to the part of ukraine now in the hands of russian forces. and this says the state department is something that we've been seeing and hearing from ukrainian officials, those who managed to flee as well, it is a systemic attempt to try to clear the lands ahead of referendum of people who might not vote in the right way. they are being prepared in order to test the public opinion and ask the people whether they want to join russia. so the first steps of and an
2:05 am
next annexation 6 the parts in russian hands. these filtration camps, forcible removal of many hundreds of thousands, possibly millions ahead of that, but also the details from the state department, the details of what goes on in the filtration camps, families separated, people stripped naked, humiliated, tortured and sometimes disappeared entirely. >> really troubling there. melissa bell, thank you so much for that from kyiv. the second suspect in that deadly stabbing spree that terrorized canada has died. ten people were killed, 18 others injured. police say myles sanderson went into medical distress yesterday. he died shortly after being arrested. that means both suspects wanted in the massed stabbing are now dead. >> people were saying i haven't
2:06 am
slept, i can't close my eyes. so i hope that this brings them some sense of closure. unfortunately, you know, now that myles is deceased, we may never have an understanding of that motivation. >> the other suspect sanderson's older brother was found dead one day after the attacks. police in memphis have arrested a suspect in a murder rampage across the city that left four people dead and three others injured. >> so first i want to reassure the community that 19-year-old ezekiel kelly is in fact in custody. this has been a horrific week for the city of memphis and the memphis police department. we extend our sincere condolences to all the victims who have been affected in this sequence of violent acts today. >> the crime spree began shortly after midnight wednesday and
2:07 am
ended at 9:00 p.m. after a seventh sohooting event. kelly was taken into custody following a high speed chase. he is expected to face several felony charges. a suspect has been arrested in the stabbing death of "las vegas review-journal" investigative reporter jeff german. the public administrator was arrested wednesday in connection with the death. german was working on a story about tellis the week he was killed. he is being held on a murder count and has a court appearance this afternoon. two critical storm systems are churning, one in the atlantic, hurricane earl, and the other hurricane kay in the pacific could bring major flooding. meanwhile california dealing with a sweltering heatwave and devastating wildfire.
2:08 am
let's get right to pedram javaheri. what is happening on the west coast, just real tough there. and now these two tropical storms. >> yeah, this storm system here category 1 now, and it did make it up to a category 2, so weakened just a little bit. but hurricane watches are across west central baja and even the u.s./mexican border, a tropical storm watch has been issued there. the storm 85-mile-per-hour winds, parallels the coastline here. potentially makes landfall right in a sparsely populated area, the baja, but notice has we go from thursday to friday, we have ourselves a tropical storm very near the area of southern california before models suggest that the system shifts a little farther away from land. but the last time we had a hurricane that was within 250 miles of san diego was back when hurricane nora pushed in within a radius back in 1997. hurricane kay comes into very close proximity of the same
2:09 am
region, the closest pass of any tropical system with category 1 winds to push near san diego. but notice the impacts certainly going to be indirect at the very least here in southern california from friday into saturday. could see some significant rainfall out of this with as much as 2, 3 inches across parts of the mojave desert. what it will do is break down that massive ridge of high pressure that has been firmly in place. so with the heavy rainfall, potential for flooding and certainly some relief from the fire activity across this region, there is going to be a flood risk across parts of california. we do have flood watches prompted now but notice these temperatures, not often you see this happen in palm springs where you go from 104 to 83 in the matter of a couple days. death valley from the 1 teens down to 89. sacramento from 113 down to 92. so again, some relief on the horizon here with the incoming tropical system. >> when 92 degrees in sacramento

weeks. and i hope there will be ten republicans to support it. >> so this senate push comes after the house passed legislation back in july to protect same-sex marriage with support from 47 republicans. some senate democrats have suggested attaching the bill to a short term government funding bill. but schumer says he would prefer to bring it to the floor as a separate piece of legislation. boost for democrats two months out from the crucial midterm elections. a source tells cnn former president barack obama plans to campaign for a variety ofs including those down the ballot running for secretary of state in key battlegrounds. it indicates the level of concern for election integrity and the thoimportance of those positions for 2024. and meantime the former first couple finally unveiling their white house portraits. >> barack and michelle, welcome

a record number of migrants have died this year on the southern border. nearly 750 people have lost their lives trying to enter the u.s. that surpasses last year's total by 200. it comes as texas governor greg abbott keeps busing migrants from texas to blue states in the northeast. but as rosa flores tells us, a borer city led by democrats is now doing the same. >> reporter: you asked your children for forgiveness.

teachers facing a new kind of challenge as we emerge from the pandemic, learning loss in students. mostly from a lack of in-person classes in the early months of the covid-19 pandemic. and the national data show it. it shows children learning to read in the early days of covid now has the lowest reading proficiency rates in about two decades. let's bring in an npr correspondent, author of the stolen year. so good to have you on this
2:41 am
morning. stats are pretty startling. the department of education releasing data last thursday showing that the reading scores for 9-year-olds are down, sharpest decline in some 30 years. you can see the math scores there too. how far behind are america's kids here? >> i think it is reasonable to expect a few years of recovery before we resume the achievement trajectories that we had seen in years past. but it won't be automatic. recovery happens if there is investment in extra learning time and in proven strategies to help kids succeed. >> so we'll have to work for it. and we know some states are implementing mandatory tutoring, new reading programs. and those who can afford it have hired tutors. this headline in the washington street journal struck me, wealthy families stick with full-time tutors hired early in pandemic. upper middle classd disd dissatisfied with k through 12
2:42 am
signing up for it as well. what do you think it will take to close the learning gap here? >> it really underlies the inequities that we saw all the way through the pandemic. whether that was access to hot meals or safe place to be. certainly families with economic stresses, it really compounds. again, you know, we know that the access to remote learning was also unequal by class. white children and hire income children were more likely to have more time in person. so in order to rectify that, i don't see it coming from anywhere else other than the federal and state governments. >> i can remember having a fifth grader and i was really concerned about my fifth grader falling behind. and that is a really important year. each one of these grade school years are really important to set you up for high school and college. but fifth grade in particular so much research shows. and i can remember teacher and

parents saying they are all stalled together. and i'm not sure that is true. i think some kids really did keep moving, especially kids who were wealthier. are they all in the same boat here or not? >> well, definitely everyone faced headwinds, so it might be the same storm, but not the same boat. and i think that we're absolutely seeing the effects of that here. and what is dangerous is that when we start talking about achievement gaps or learning loss, that we'll brand the kids who didn't get as much to begin with and we'll say that it is their failure or their deficit. and that is not the case at all. what needs to happen here is redressing what went wrong and being very laser focused on the kids that didn't get the resources that they needed to succeed. >> in your book, you spoke to a 13-year-old who spent most of the pandemic in his room. he said that i'm not involved with stuff like my friends because they hang out a lot because their parents don't care as much about covid i guess. it does show you different
2:44 am
families address the crisis in different ways and different states and different school districts did as well. so what is your advice to parents this fall on navigating covid especially if they come from a family that is concerned about the virus? >> yes, that is a rely great question because most of the restrictions in most places have really lifted. and for those people that have vulnerable family members at home, or if they already have been dealing with the effects of long covid, you no longer feel like your community is out there helping you. you feel like you are on your own. one way masking with high quality masks can be very protective, people can get booster shots. there are other ways to protect yourself. but it is not like it was in earlier stages of the pandemic where you feel it is a collective effort. >> there is some cdc advice for parents, make sure that your kid has a daily predictable routine. connect with other parents, you know, with children in the same program, talk to your teachers and your educators. i guess what is your advice for
2:45 am
what extra parents should be doing as we try to redress the learning loss here? >> you know, learning is so connected to the social and emotional and sense of motivation and belonging the kids have at school. so i would say make sure that your child's social environment is enriched too. we don't want to flip our kids over and feel like they have to work in academics all the time because they will have time to catch up as long as they remain engaged and motivated and seeking a brighter future. >> just very quickly, did we do it right, closing the schools and going to remote learning and hybrid learning? or was closing the schools the wrong answer? >> the point of my book, we could have done it much differently and we could have served kids and prioritized kids much more by opening the schools and closing the bars. >> all right. a great read, thank you so much for that. just ahead, water as far as the eye can see. we're on the ground in pakistan's deadly flood zone.
