6:32 pm
trump organization pleaded guilty today to evading taxes, and agreed to testify against the company at an upcoming trial. so we have a lot of news to get to tonight, and cbs's catherine herridge is here to start us all off. good evening, catherine. >> reporter: norah, there is good action today from new york to florida that could have wide- reaching implications for the former president. federal judge bruce reinhart found the justice department had not met the high threshold for showing the entire affidavit should remain sealed, and he ordered the immediate release of these procedural records that provide new insight into the possible crimes behind the mar-a-lago search. willful retention of national defense information, concealment or removal of government records, and obstruction of a federal investigation. the judge agreed with media organizations, including cbs news, that at least some part of the affidavit that supported the search could be unsealed. >> balancing the interest in the public of accessing these materials, against the interest in the government in keeping
6:33 pm
them secret. >> reporter: under today's order, the justice department has one week to propose what information they would like to black out or redact from the affidavit-- information that, if made public, prosecutors believe would be a road map to the criminal probe, and would reveal identities of potential witnesses and the f.b.i. agents involved. how much of the affidavit will the public see? >> i think we can look forward to discovering a few more tantalizing details. for the most part, we're not going to see the core of what we are all interested in, but none of which will be good news for former president trump. >> reporter: and earlier today in a manhattan court, the former chief financial officer of the trump organization pleaded guilty to not paying taxes on almost $2 million in compensation. >> my chief financial officer, allen weisselberg. >> reporter: in pleading guilty, allen weisselberg acknowledged conspiring with the trump organization to evade taxes, and he could be called to testify as
6:34 pm
early as this fall. the trump organization called weisselberg a "fine and honorable man," claiming he was harassed, persecuted, and threatened, in a politically- motivated prosecution. on twitter, a trump spokesman said the american public should be permitted to see the whole mar-a-lago affidavit without sections blacked out. norah. >> o'donnell: catherine herridge with a lot of news today. thank you. well, today, federal health officials announced a major boost to the country's supply of the monkeypox vaccine, amid a surges of new cases. cases are up more than 30% in the last week, to over 14,000. cbs's tanya rivero has the new details. >> reporter: tonight, the white house says an additional 1.8 million doses of the monkeypox vaccine will be available starting monday, as cases of monkeypox are up over 30% from just a week ago. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you, sir. >> reporter: and yet c.d.c. director dr. rochelle walensky admits the government is still studying the vaccine's efficacy.
6:35 pm
>> to be clear, we're learning how well these vaccines work against monkeypox, and in this specific outbreak. >> reporter: the c.d.c. is also encouraging the switch to injecting just below the skin to stretch doses up to five times. today, 20-year-old edward o'keefe finally received his first dose at this new jersey clinic. >> there weren't any appointments available, and so, i found that pretty frustrating and maybe a little scary. >> reporter: more than 50% of cases are among men of color. >> we're not reaching men with sex with men, who are black and brown, the way that we need to. >> reporter: and now, cases among children are starting to rise-- so far, 12 children have been infected. >> children are at higher risk for severe monkeypox. it can even be deadly in very young children. the most likely source of exposure for kids in the united states to monkeypox is going to be through a caregiver. united states to monke >> reporter: the administration is also launching a new program, setting aside 50,000 vaccine
6:36 pm
doses for large events, such as the upcoming black pride in atlanta, and southern decadence in new orleans, where one of the main events was just cancelled due to monkeypox concerns. norah. >> o'donnell: tanya rivero, thank you very much. we want to go now to the southern border, where the number of migrants apprehended entering the u.s. could hit a record two million this year. and that is intensifying the debate over whether asylum seekers should be sent to places like new york city. like new york city. tonight, cbs's manual bojorquez takes us to a texas border town. >> reporter: after being processed at the border, some asylum seekers arrived just a few miles away, at the val verde border humanitarian coalition in del rio, texas-- a pit stop as they await a bus to their next destination, like edixon gutierrez from venezuela, who has it written down. midland, texas. another venezuelan, angie cordero and her ten-year-old daughter, know what they left behind. (speaking spanish)
6:37 pm
>> reporter: the hunger? (speaking spanish) >> reporter: no jobs? (speaking spanish) they don't know what lies ahead. you are in limbo. you don't know where you're going to go. they may end up on one of these buses that are prepped by the state of texas, and then sent to pick up migrants, with the option of travel to washington, d.c. or new york city. ms out os nothing new, but as the number of apprehensions along the border remain at record highs, it's become the latest flash point in the debate over the nation's immigration policies. >> for those that live in the northern parts of our country, it's hard to even imagine how crazy this situation is. it does not end. it doesn't stop., >> reporter: that's despite about half of those detained at the border being sent back,
6:38 pm
under the trump-era pandemic policy known as title 42. but the policy does not extend to those from crisis-stricken cuba, nicaragua, and venezuela, a majority of the people we encountered along this section of the border, who, like angie cordero and her daughter, keep venturing into an uncertain future. and, just behind me here in eagle pass, texas, yet another group, including children, have just arrived on this side of the border. since april, 7,900 migrants have been taken by bus to new york city and washington d.c., despite the objections of the mayors there, who call it a political stunt that is taxing their resources. norah. >> o'donnell: manny bojorquez on the border, thanks. we have some breaking news. two planes collided in midair in the city of watsonville, california, that is near san jose tonight killing several people. cbs' jonathan vigliotti has the latest information. >> reporter: around 2:56 p.m., two small planes collided in midair while the pilots were on

6:44 pm
an education? >> yes. >> yes.. >> is it important >> yes. >> reporter: but as strongly as these girls feel about being educated, coming here isn't easy. what does it feel like, coming to a school like this, where you have to dress very conservatively, and hide, to get an education? >> i feel bad. >> reporter: you feel bad? >> yes. >> reporter: it is a feeling 14-year-old huda siddiqui knows. >> you feel bad. >> yeah all too well. we met her last year just months after the taliban announced its ban on girl's educaton. one year later, and she is still out of school. why is education so important? >> if you don't reopen schools, where are the girls going to get educated? then you can't take your wives to female doctors, they have to get educated to become doctors. >> reporter: now, a taliban spokesman insisted to us that this is only a temporary suspension. but one year on, and many girls

6:48 pm
answer for that-- and a number of other traffic woes. here's cbs's kris van cleave. >> reporter: carmel, indiana is sending drivers for a loop, by design. round and round we go. the city is home to 142 roundabouts and counting, more than any other city in the u.s. mayor james brainard says it makes the community safer and greener. does it bug you that we're stopped at a light? >> yes. two cars are going through the center section-- a roundabout would have moved 30 cars through in the same amount of time. >> reporter: by 2025, carmel-- home to more than 100,000-- will be a one-stoplight town. >> we don't have to pave over paradise. we can keep our roads more narrow, and that's better for the environment, it's better for pedestrians. >> reporter: there is a bit of a learning curve, but carmel has been able to remove traffic lanes even as its population has more than quadrupled. the roundabouts create green space across carmel. but what they are really doing is keeping traffic flowing, but slowing it down.
6:49 pm
slower speeds make the roads safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. the insurance institute for highway safety found the switch to roundabouts cut injury crashes by nearly half. and busy intersections, like exiting highways, saw an 84% drop. >> as traffic fatalities continue to rise in the u.s., we really need to be using all of the tools in our toolbox, and roundabouts are one of those tools. >> reporter: and by eliminating idling at traffic lights, carmel's roundabouts remove the equivalent of 5,000 cars-worth of carbon dioxide, while saving drivers an estimated $14 million a year in gas, says former city engineer michael mcbride. if roundabouts work so well, why are they not everywhere in the u.s.? >> you know, i think the biggest piece of that is education. we're talking about human lives being saved by roundabout intersections. once i think the world embracesi that, roundabouts will be everywhere. >> reporter: nationally, there are about 7,900 roundabouts. require they be co new york and virginia now require they be considered as an
