"You Right now 28° in annandale Virginia 30 in college park Maryland and 28° in audio Virginia as well 1141 Thursday marking one year since the attack on the capitol by that mob of Trump supporters the anniversary leading to discussions about what we learned about security around the capitol complex itself But it's a conversation that may be just getting started National security correspondent JJ green joins Shawn and Hillary to talk about it earlier There are a couple of reasons for that Attorney general Merrick Garland said they're just getting started even after many many many thousands of pieces of evidence coming past them 725 people that almost all 50 states having been arrested a lot of people have been charged The congressional investigation is bogged down There are people that are still trying to avoid talking to that committee There are a lot of things that they don't know that would help them put the pieces together These sources that I've spoken to one in particular said you can't really know what all of the lessons learned are or the most important ones until you get the story done You get it sort of nailed down and fixed But one thing that is clear is that they do know that there are some things that they figured out but the whole package is still out there and it may change even after they get some of the other information and later JJ some of those lessons have prompted changes already isn't that true That's right One of the things that I spoke with secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro mayorkas about yesterday was the fact that his office is pushing out more information not just to first responders and emergency responders and law enforcement across the country but they're trying to get information into communities into people's hands so that they have information and obviously this is not classified or secret information but information about what's going on around them so that they can make decisions about what to do Disinformation is one thing that's very important here because a lot of what took place on January 6th a year ago where people according to some interviews that we've seen of people who were there in participating people having the wrong idea about what was going on getting sucked down a rabbit hole they say so they want to educate people more about what's going on about certain things that in the past they weren't necessarily told about JJ after 9 11 we remember there was a big overhaul of the intelligence sharing system in the U.S. to prevent something like that from happening again But we learned this didn't work in the run up to the capitol riot The question is now what Yeah so in some of my reporting and speaking to some folks who actually worked in the intelligence community at DHS and in other places there was a systematic a catastrophic systemic breakdown of the architecture that was put up or set up after 9 11 to make sure that intelligence sharing across the country from the federal level all the way down to the state local territorial and tribal level worked but it didn't work this time and it had a lot to do with politics A lot of folks I'm told were afraid to talk about certain subjects including Russia and domestic violent extremists because they didn't want to anger the president So now what's happening is authorities recognize they've got to figure out a way to make sure that doesn't happen again Not sure how they're going to achieve that But it is a clear mandate for them to deal with that And that is W TOP's national security correspondent JJ green Sports is next on TOP with a 7 44 The college football championship on FanDuel sports book this is Dave Johnson new customers defend those sports football get 30 to one enhanced dogs under their Alabama or Georgia to win So you can bet $5 to wait $150 so either Alabama or Georgia to win it all And with bright sugar quarterback I'm going with Alabama All you have to.

A. and preorder your copy of this classic custom fyrom but even better than that. We have the man who made it possible on the line with us. None other than the founder ceo ceo. The president of car firearms justin moon. Welcome back to america. First thanks for having me sebastian. It's great to be look you you. I mean the market is not so we know that the market is crazy. Just buying ammunition can be a chore. But i didn't think that we would sell two hundred custom. Nineteen eleven in just a couple of days. Is that what you expected. I expect that either. I guess you're more popular than we. Both imagined sebastian. We'll have to make the next version. We'll change we'll do a different version different colors and then we'll have the second edition. But in the meantime go gallery of guns dot com and look for these special custom. Okay tell us why guns can be looked at as a very pedestrian thing like a hammer. Like tool some manufacturers. That's their attitude. It's just another tool. it's just another artifact. You have a very different attitude. When i met you at shot show we connected almost instantly. Would you share with our three million listeners. And then all the other people who are going to watch this later on rumble. Why for you. It's not just about engineering. It's not just about self defense. It truly is about the future of our republican. What your family history. How that informs your views. I mean our republic was founded on the notion and the understanding that Liberty is not given to us by the governments are are are by man liberties a human right which is given to us by god and that we have liberty when the government. These are so low My father was held in the north korean combination concentration camp worth nearly three years and he was freed by general mcarthur as he pushed up so up to the river. And so you know for for me. Guns are about freedom that's what they represent. They represent the right of an average to deter to have his own self determination. I mean look what's happening around the world today. S- about this with this cohen nightmare tyranny. Which is all over the western world. I mean have you seen the video clips coming out of australia. Where policemen beating old ladies shelf. People just a protested yeah and venezuela when they're flying our flag the american flag and demanding libertad libertad. I'm so glad you mentioned that. The new context and the cova context look. It seems that there's something cyclical even under the reagan administration. We had Firearms restrictions than we had Clinton and then we had. Of course you know the obama craziness and now the banning of certain types of ammunition by the biden ministration. But this time. Mr moon justin. It's not just the usual democrat demagoguery. Isn't this assault against Thirst freedoms more serious than the ones we've witnessed in the past. I think this is one of the most serious assaults american have ever faced. I mean if they can stick the stick the needle in you and force you to take a vaccine against your will they can take your guns. They can spell you in a concentration camp. They can murder you so this is very terrifying. And i think a lot of americans get. That's why they are buying going out there. Buying and buying america first gun because they understand that we're gonna have liberties this world america must be husband and must be again the first nation to stand for liberty because there's nowhere else to run if america falls. That's it would you. Shall we have a few minutes left talking into the president and founder of car firearms account firearms group. That's k. h. dot com an amazing line of weapons.

One car believes americans shouldn't be afraid to publicly stand up for their freedoms. This is about more than being a gun enthusiasts. This is a very personal issue. Is we struggle for the soul of america. Car wants america. I listened to know that they are not afraid to publicly support. Second amendment friday and we will be playing for you the discussion we had yesterday with the ceo of you. Don't want to miss it later here. On america first meantime check out their amazing line of. Us made weapons at k. H. dot com that's k. h. a. dot com earlier today just over an hour ago. Where the head of the department of homeland security had this to say play cots for the facts are in. Is it helpful to your investigation for the president of the united states to use language. Like people being strapped. Let me just be very clear. And repeat what i've said. I am not concerned with respect the integrity of the investigation. We know how to conduct an investigation with integrity. I served as twelve years. as a federal prosecutor. There were a great deal of comments. And many of the cases that i handled in the public sphere and i know how to maintain the integrity of an investigation and this investigation will have integrity. Alejandro my yorkers lecturing america about integrity. let's ask a man who i'm sure has an opinion about that little sound. Bite the forty eighth commissioner of the police force in new york. The most prestigious police position in the world a good friend of america first off the lost son bernie carry welcome to america first. Thanks so yesterday. The man who as the title president said from the podium in the white house that those who strapped quote unquote illegal immigrants will pay a price and today the head of the s saying oh we will have an investigation and it will have integrity your reaction well. The president shouldn't comment on things. He does have no That he doesn't know about I watched one video after another. I haven't seen anybody strapped Border patrol says no one was strapped. no pictures of that So you know unless there's something out there that nobody knows about which. I don't think that's the case. Because the border patrol themselves has said it's a lie did not happen That's one thing you know d. We wanted investigation with integrity. Yes but here's my problem. They're calling for the abolishment of the unit. They're telling people that they don't. They're not gonna send the guys back out on horses. It's one of the most It it's it's one of the most important details out there For the for the woman that's working in the field You know in these in these hot spots in texas and arizona places like that so because because the white house and the critics. The law enforcement critics You know on the left because they come out and make these hideous cues ations that are unfounded. Thus far you're going to completely annihilate you like that it's insane this is this is typical. Left-wing radical attacks on police in public safety. I one of my favorite photographs. I was leaving folks news after a hit and there was an equine. Nypd officer there and he wanted to say hello to selfie with him and his horse. Treasured photograph told us about the importance of these kinds of units. And how essentially when you have to physically control an area commissioner well in the nypd attend. I think we actually had one of the biggest states. Not the biggest mounted unit in the country. I think back when i was police commissioner. We have over over. We had over a hundred twenty courses for crowd control for moving people for for holding allied. There's nothing better for you. Know for every horse a cop. A horse the covers. You know you could. That takes the place of ten to fifteen cops right That being the case. There's nothing better than that out the field when you're doing enforcement like the border patrol what they've gotta do the boop and they've gotta do corralling of people. The things dance do out there. There's nothing better nothing better. It's been going on years all the sudden ono we're gonna we're gonna end the unit you know this is. This is typical. Sebastian of everything that the left does one thing happens and they annihilate annihilate that public safety sector you know one cop in in minnesota minneapolis does something stupid and they basically attacked eight hundred thousand police officers in the united states of america. That's what they do. It's truly a war on lawrence fourth offices. I'm dedicated a whole episode of my newsmax show. America first that issue. Please watch this sunday seven. Pm eastern at ten pm eastern. It's the goal korea to check on newsmax. Commissioner character has been a guest on my show. You can get the app for free. Watch it for free. Download it today. Commissioner kerik. Let's shift gears to the announcement of the arizona audit today. I've just read tweeted. It's at the top of my twitter. Feed from constitutional attorney matthew s. japan. No who has released some of the documentation from the audit. I'm just gonna read the tweet. Fifty seven thousand seven hundred. Thirty four ballots have serious issues in the audit just from that one county talk to us about the significance of today's reports and other impending ordinance. Well let's hear they'll make it simple. Because i i know the fake news is all over. This could they're taking snippets out of the Out of the order and they're trying to turn it into biden one. Let's take your number your number alone. Keep in mind. Donald trump. he lost by ten thousand five hundred now resolved ten thousand five hundred. You had let me see male with votes without Hold on one. Second male and butch without validates I think it was like twenty three twenty three thousand twenty three thousand The numbers are overwhelming where there were problem areas And and the the people the the illegals that voted. I don't know what that total number turned out today. But it's way over ten thousand five hundred is the bottom line. Donald trump won arizona. I don't care you could fake news at all you want but when you break down the numbers that makes no sense that makes no sense and the the corruption. The the things that went on there not only shouldn't have happened in arizona. They've happened all over this country and it's up to the state legislators whether they decertify. Here's my biggest issue. But they decertify arizona with the caller for by the trump right now at this point is what i want. I want to see state. Legislators grow some courage grow. Get the courage to go out and make sure that just gonna stop can never happen to get. Do we have to ask the so. What question on threat you know. What my reaction is. You were there in the room. When i told president trump might plant plan for what happens when the orchards role in He has to use this evidence to As as part of his campaign for re election in twenty twenty four. Is there anything else that can be done or should be done until then when we get more of these kinds of shocking results commissioner. I think the biggest thing Sebastian one what you just said to make sure the american people don't exactly what happened and why who is responsible. The second thing is to make sure we use that as lessons learned to make sure that it doesn't happen again. I know there's a lot of people calling for decertification. There's you know all the stuff this stuff would get tied up in court for another year two years and let's just say the courts went along with it and donald trump reinstated for eighteen months. Yeah really you know. We waited four years. We we need a second. And there's no and there's no guarantee given what we witnessed in the last five years that The judges would actually do the right thing. We saw what the supreme court date with texas and the seventeen other states that had standing but were rejected for political purposes. Follow this man right now. He is digging for the truth. Every single day at bernard carrick on twitter and read his truly remarkable. I don't like biographies but this book. It's one you need to read the lost son. A life in pursuit of justice. God bless you commissioner. I'm sebastian gorka. This is america first next on national security and foreign policy update with none other than the vice president of the heritage foundation.

Paul i want people to read your book books but in a few minutes. Just walk us through that. What we're witnessing here. Today in america isn't because obama isn't because hillary isn't because biden this has been to quote the other side truly a long march through the institutions. The left had plan. Did they not poll. Yeah you're going to say that long march is right on. And that's that's a phrase attributed dantonio. Graham she who was the early twentieth century italian marxist mussalini threw him in prison. He was so bad. Publicity was pro-marxist actually so even he couldn't couldn't stand it antonio graham she but yeah. This has been a long march through the institutions to the point where you're to borrow mark levin spray about american marxism that to the type of marxism that. We're witnessing today said isn't what you and i saw in the eighties or the nineties or your father saw or what we saw in the forties and fifties and nineteen thirty nineteen forties nineteen fifties communist party. Usa that was soviet marxism the hollywood ten all ten of them. We have five digit communist party. Usa numbers they all swore a little a literal loyalty oath to the soviet union. They pledge themselves to a soviet america. What langston us. Who's now required reading in american public. Schools called it a u. s. s. a. But what we're seeing. Today is not so the marxism. It's where we're seeing this uniquely brand of american marxism where they're applying it to culture. They're applying it to sexuality. Gender their agenda marxists they're a feminist marxist people like judith butler there ended. There are also marcus who replying into race. Critical race theory. So the type of marxism we're seeing today. Would it be recognizable marks other than the marx would appreciate how they were pity. People in different groups have hostile camps of antagonistic groups. At one another's throats segmenting people not according to class but according to race or gender or some other identity and they these young people have picked it up from their universities is what's been taught the last thirty or forty years and now we're we're reading what we've saw. I've gotta ask you you. You mentioned the hollywood ten. We talk to paul kangol It just in sixty seconds. Eugene mccarthy wha what is the correct historical verdict on him. Well that's a good question stan evans wrote. The best book blacklisted by history. Which anybody watching right now any liberals. Listen i'm telling. You cannot have an opinion on mccarthy without reading that book and some say will stand was way too favourable to mccarthy but at least provided a corrective and mccarthy was right in a lot of the allegations that he made Did he ever reckless at times. Shore at absolutely but but mccarthy was definitely ahead of everybody else in in in realizing just how bad communist penetrated of almost every agency in the federal government in the nineteen nineteen thirty nineteen forties late. Not the fact is it's it's not the style it's not the language he used. It is the facts of the matter. Bit like a former boss of mine. it is fabulous book. Rest in peace. M stanton evans a check.

That's a funny audio, but She was more forceful in it, and she took heat for it. Mayorga says What he wants to say he doesn't take heat for anything. But so that's what he said today. Now he went on today and I think we have the clip from earlier this year in March when he said, I'm not saying that the countries don't come right. We are not saying Don't come.

Do you think anybody's going to listen to somebody that talks that way? I know I'm not. I'm just okay. Excuse me, sir. Step aside. I've got some border crossing to do, And that's exactly what they did, because he's literally opening the door. He's opening the border, and he's doing it at the command of the commander in chief, Joe L. Barbosa. Biden now what did he say today? Now he goes on at length about how Haitians are receiving false information that the border is open. Excuse me, sir. Are you not the same guy that said Don't just don't come right now. They heard what you said in March. That's why they're flooding the border today because you've opened the border. This is a very serious thing. That's a dangerous game. They're playing because this is not just people, everybody coming for economic opportunity, which I'm sure many of them are the majority. This is literally Americans that are in our own government that are helping to destroy our economy. Our national security our national sovereignty in many ways. And all he can say is Look, they're getting the wrong information. Folks. This has nothing to do with me. This has to do with them. Listen to this. The White House is directed appropriate US agencies to work with the Haitian and other regional governments to provide assistance and support to returnees. The majority of migrants continue to be expelled under CDCs title 42 authority those who cannot be expelled under that authority. And do not have a legal basis to remain will be placed in expedited removal proceedings. DHS is conducting regular expulsion and removal flights to Haiti. Mexico, Ecuador and Northern Triangle countries. We are very concerned that Haitians who are taking this irregular migration path are receiving false information that the border is open or the temporary protected status. Is available. I want to make sure that it is known that this is not the way to come to the United States that is false information. Irregular migration poses a certain serious security risks. To the migrants themselves trying to enter the United States illegally is not worth the tragedy. The money. Or the effort. Okay, So let me get this one straight so Secretary mayor cause it's not okay if you're Haitian, and you come to the border, but it is okay if you're from Guatemala or Honduras or one of the other Central American, as you would say, Latin X countries, right? I think that sounds incredibly racist to me. If I'm making a false assumption, please correct me if you're out there, Secretary Mayorkas Feel free to give us a call. Anyway, Our phone number is 877381 38 11. I'm gonna get to your calls Next. Don't move a muscle. We're just getting started. I am rich Valdez Valdez with an S and all the social media and I am sitting in for the great one. Month Lovin.

Biden administration faces challenges at U.S.-Mexico border

"A new development in the ongoing effort to reunite some 500 migrant Children who are separated from their families under the Trump Administration, zero tolerance policy at the US Mexico border. Biden administration will now allow families who were separated the option of being reunited here in the United States. Here's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas yesterday, stressing the need to undo Previous administration's work. We will dig out of the cruelty of the past administration and we will rebuild our nation's asylum system. And all of our humanitarian programs of which we have been historically so proud. Jacob. Sober off is an NBC and MSNBC correspondent and author of separated inside an American Tragedy, and He's been following this story and joins us now. Welcome to the show, Jacob Good to be back with your time you thanks. Yes. So the most significant part of this effort is that it allows families to be reunited here on U. S soil. Why is this especially important? Well for the very reason that the families left their home country and came to seek asylum in the United States in the first place. Many of them were fleeing danger, persecution of starvation, malnutrition, acute food and security. The list goes on and on and when they made it to the United States of America, the place that represented safety and security and asylum. They were tortured. In the words of physicians for human rights. They were put through government sanctioned child abuse, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was one of the greatest human rights catastrophes of my lifetime, In the words of official who had worked on the reunifications, as he told me directly, And so this is the recourse that all of the advocates and the lawyers that I've been working with these families now for over three years. Have been seeking and it's welcome news. It's not reunification yet, but it's a step in that direction. Let's get to the particulars. How will these reunification efforts actually work? How will families know about these policy changes? Literally door to door knocking and Central America. There's a steering committee in the federal lawsuit that won the reunification of the family's missile versus ice on their going door to door justice in motion the women's Refugee Commission kids in need of defense. This is a group that has been involved in this process for quite some time. But up until this point. The reason there were 611 parents of Children who had been separated, had yet not been contacted That numbers now 400. 99 after 112 of them have been found over the course of the last month. The reason it's been taking so long is because of a lack of willingness from the federal government under the Trump administration to participate in this process, and the Biden administration has now changed that. Okay. I have just under a minute with you. But the C l U and groups like physicians for human rights have applauded these changes. But they're also calling on actors involved in these separations to be held accountable. How How would that happen? I think it's the most critical, remaining unanswered question about the family separation tragedy. I really think that that's you know what it must be called, Um, you know, the president said during the final presidential debate, he believed this was criminal. He said he was gonna launch a thorough investigation of the Justice Department. There's plenty of evidence of who was responsible for this policy. Whether it was Jeff Sessions Stephen Miller, Jean Hamilton, Kristine Nielsen. Kirsten Yes, Excuse me. That list goes on and on as well. It's a matter of whether they whether or not they want to pursue an investigation, like the president said that they would Jacob will have to have you on again.

Biden Seeks Help on Border From Mexican President

"Trump administration's immigration policies, he turned to Mexico on Monday to try to build a relationship with President Andres Manuel Lopez over door and the effort coming as a flood of migrants have rushed to the border. Since Biden's victory in November. The president has back to bill to give legal status in a path to citizenship to the estimated 11 million people. Living in the country illegally. United States and Mexico are stronger when we stand together. There's a long and complicated history between our nations that haven't always been perfect neighbors with one another. We have seen over and over again, the power and the purpose when we cooperate. And we're safer when we work together. Whether it's addressing the challenges of our shared border, forgetting this pandemic under control way had a Mexican president who dominated the country for 34 years. Very little time. His name was defeated. Yes, and he would say, or Mexico so far from dawn, and yet so close to the United States. I have no saved. Yeah, it's wonderful from Mexico to be close to God and not so far from the United States, Border Patrol agents are apprehending an average of more than 200 Children crossing the border without a parent per day. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Monday's looking toe push back against the notion that the situation at the border is spiraling out of control. When I started 27 days ago, I learned that we did not have Thief facilities available or equipped To administer the humanitarian laws that are Congress passed years ago. Way did not have the personnel. Policies, procedures or training to administer those laws. Quite frankly, the entire system was gutted. It takes time. Build out of the depths of cruelty that the administration before us established, they need. They need to wait. It takes time. To rebuild the system from scratch. If they come if families come if single adults come to the border, we are obligated to in the service of public health, including the health of the very people who are thinking of coming. To impose the travel restrictions under the C D. C s title 42 with the authorities and return them. To Mexico and we have done that. We need individuals to wait and I will say that they will wait with a goal in mind and that is our ability to rebuild as quickly as possible. A system so that they don't have to take that the dangerous journey and we can enable them tow access humanitarian relief from their Kwan countries. Of origin. Um, do you believe that right now, there's a crisis at the border. I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing. Following the White House's virtual meeting with the Mexican president, the two sides released a joint statement pledging greater cooperation on addressing migration, the corona virus pandemic and climate change. The Mexican government issued a separate statement, adding the two sides also agreed to crack down on migrant trafficking. Democrats hope of including that minimum

By an administration statement said the legislation modernizes the U. S immigration system and prioritizes keeping families together growing the economy responsibly managing the border with smart investments, addressing the root causes of migration from Central America and ensuring that the United States remains a refugee for those fleeing persecution. Refuge. That would be the bill creates the road map to citizenship for undocumented residents. They can apply for temporary legal status with the ability to apply for green cards after five years if they meet certain conditions and apply for citizenship after another three years. The young undocumented people known as dreamers. The temporary protective status holders and immigrant farm workers to meet specific requirements are eligible for green cards immediately. Reporter Suzanne Potter has more On his first day in office. President elect Joe Biden is pressing for bold immigration reform, proposing a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. It would apply to people who have a clean criminal record, and we're in the U. S before January 1st. If approved, this would be the first so called mass legalization since 1986 during the Reagan administration, Carlos Guevara with the group we need, those US says there's a lot of pent up demand for change in the immigration system were Pleased and, frankly, for the little bit by how visionary Bill appears to be the path to seven of eight years. That is the passages that we have ever seen. California is home to two million undocumented immigrants, 200,000 DR recipients and 55,000 people who hold temporary protected status, all of whom could benefit from the Biden proposal. Opponents say it amounts to amnesty for people who have broken US immigrant In laws. Cynthia Breeze a with the California Immigrant Policy Center, describes herself as cautiously optimistic about the bill's potential, She notes. The Biden administration has so many crises to attend to, and his party only has a slim majority in the Senate were all for it, but we wanted a level of seriousness. The political will, because you need to get this policy Congress. The proposal would also make everyone eligible for Kobe vaccinations regardless of immigration status. It would make more people in mixed satisfyingly eligible for pandemic relief and would implement job protections and industries that employ a lot of immigrant workers for California. NEW service I'm Suzanne Potter, a coalition of West Virginia civil rights groups wants Congress to pass a bill aimed at rebuilding government. Diane Bernard has that story. HOUSE BILL. One note is before the People Act recommends sweeping reforms to extend voting rights and partisan Jerry Mannering and boost ethics laws. Julie Archer with the group West Virginia Citizens for Clean Elections, says it would make the democracy more inclusive, which she says is much needed in an era of election misinformation and rioters overtaking the U. S capital. They have an opportunity with the new Congress to transform our democracy with the passage. Of HR one. In addition to protecting and expanding voting rights, HR one would address the rampant corruption and dress around for ethics, accountability, oversight and rule of law that continue to plague our government. Republicans who opposed the bill call it a power grab by Democrats that would restrict political opposition and enhance democratic voting turnout. The GOP Senate blocked a first version of the bill last year. But with more Democrats now in Congress, it's more likely to pass Cherry Mannering reformism. Hot issue, West Virginia this year after the state passed a law changing House district's from multi member to all single member district's, according to Democratic House delegate Evan Hansen. He points to the Republicans super majority of both State House and Senate, which he says will impact the redistricting process. They're even more opportunities to engage in partisan gerrymandering as these new district's get drawn, so that's not a concern of mine and one reason why I think this federal Inflation is so important to Kaya Smith with the group Our Future. West Virginia notes that African Americans gave the right to vote 56 years ago, and many believe this right has been under attack. Ever since. She says HB one would address this inequity.

"News. This is all things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. And I'm Ari Shapiro. Today, the Senate began holding confirmation hearings for some of President elect Biden's Cabinet nominees, among them his choice to lead the Department of Homeland Security. Alejandro Mayorkas, NPR's Brian Naylor reports. If he's confirmed, Alejandro Mayorkas will face a range of challenges from immigration and the border to domestic extremists. In his opening statement, Mayorkas called the January 6th storming of the capital by a mob of Trump supporters horrific if I should have the honor Being confirmed. I will do everything I can To ensure that the tragic loss of life the assault on law enforcement the desecration of the building that stands as one of the three pillars of our democracy. A terror that you felt your colleagues, staff and everyone present will not happen again. D addresses also partially responsible for cyber security. In the wake of a massive hacking of government computers identified is coming from Russia, New Yorkers said DHS has to step up its game to cyber security. Of our nation will be one of my highest priorities because I concur with you that the threat is real, and the threat is every day and we have to do a much better job than we are doing now. Under Trump. DHS has been focused on border security overseeing construction of miles of wall along the southern border. President elect Biden has pledged to halt construction of the barrier. The artist was asked if he would attempt to dismantle any of it. In response, he cited the late Senator John McCain, whom may arc is called an American hero. The border is varied. Depending on the geography, depending on the specific venue and is spending up, depending on the conduct of individuals around it. And we don't need nor should we have a monolithic answer to that varied in diverse challenge. New Yorkers faced tough questions from several Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security panel over his actions as director of the U. S Citizenship and Immigration Service in the Obama administration and inspector General's report said that New York has helped prominent Democrats involved in a visa program. Mayorkas countered. He helped any number of people navigated the case that you mentioned in three case. Says that recited in the inspector general's report are three of hundreds and hundreds of cases. I became involved in at the request of senators and members of the House of Representatives on both sides of the aisle. It's unclear how many Republicans will oppose Mayorkas. Missouri Republican Josh Harley said he will not allow the nomination to be fast tracked because of Biden's immigration proposal. But with a working majority of Democrats New YORK This is likely to win Senate confirmation, if not right away. Brian Naylor. NPR News Tonight 400 Lights are illuminating the waters of the Lincoln Memorial, reflecting pool. The lighting ceremony is being hosted by President elect Biden and Vice President elect Terrace and it's meant to honor the 400,000 US lives lost to Cove in 19. Historian Mickey McWilliams has written about the role of collective mourning in this moment of national tragedy and joins me now, welcome. Thanks for having me Just to focus on what is unfolding here in Washington tonight. The reflecting pool is obviously not just any pool, not just any setting. Would you describe for us? The Majesty of this setting and what you see as you look across that pool? No. This is an iconic vista of heroes and honor and memorial ization. It's impossible to consider that terrain without also thinking of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom in 1963, and I think it's fitting. Not only given the week but also fitting because it marks the collective human activist. Collaborative response to moments of crisis and national endeavor. Yeah, stay with the collective Moment that this represents. I remember reading back in May When we had lost what was then an unimaginable 90,000 lives to covert night, right? You wrote an op ed about about that We need to mourn together which the pandemic has made impossible. To do it in person. You worried about how sharing grief brings people together, and I wonder if you would elaborate on that. Sharing grief brings people together, especially in the United States. Like nothing else. This is a vast country of an enormous and varied population. Most Americans will never know one another personally see one another. Yet it's in moments of national mourning. It's in moments of collective grief. And collective honor. The we come together, I wonder whether it is harder to mourn. While we're still in the middle of something, the pandemic and these 400,000 lives lost it Zoom in. It's just tragic to say it, but we're obviously not near the end. This is not like a mass shooting or a terror attack or add Earthquake where it's awful, but then it's over and you can take stock. I believe that it's more important now than ever, and it has been more important to honor those who have died but also toe enact collective mourning, in part to maintain vigilance. In part to remind us how important it remains, and is to wear masks to follow public health recommendations. There's no way That we can build from this and repair so much of the damage without a clear eyed, honest, sober confrontation of what's happened. This is the reckoning that we need well, and it's worth noting that we mark this moment of 400,000 lives lost in the US at a moment. When our capital city is locked down, is militarized in the service of protecting Americans from other Americans. How does that complicate collective mourning? How does such a divided America even begin to do anything more nor anything else collectively? It is both an enormous barrier and makes the stakes that much higher that We share..

Nominees for some of the bigger jewels in that cabinet crown today. We're for secretaries of State in homeland Security. U. N. Ambassador director of National Intelligence Let's start with Antony Blinken. He's the nominee for secretary of state. What's his background? Well, he's been with fighting for a very long time. He has a sort of mind meld with the president elect, and they worked in Congress together in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Hey, worked at the state Department of Deputy secretary of State and Blinking also worked closely with Biden when he was vice president. A deputy national security advisor s O. They know each other. He's reputation is sort of a liberal internationalist does believe in a strong and large role for the United States. In some ways is a little bit more hawkish in interventionist than the president elect. Hey, support. Blinken supported the intervention in Libya something that Biden did not support. Blinking also supported Ah, large U. S intervention in Syria on so they are totally ideologically in the exact same place, but he's a very sort of faithful servant of the president elect. And the nominee for U. N Ambassador is Linda Thomas Greenfield has been described as a career foreign service officer. She's coming out of retirement, right? Yes, she did retire in the Trump era, didn't her last job in the Obama administration of is our top diplomat for Africa? She comes with, you know a lot you know, over two decades worth of experience in the foreign service, not a political type person per se. I'm not like a lifelong Democrat or anything like that. A career diplomat On, so looks to be someone who would be, um you know, a good soldier over at the U. N. For Biden not heavily ideological. But what has been helping the president elect, reform the State Department and promote diversity, And some of these names that we've seen come out aren't may be familiar to those of us outside of Washington, D C. Like Alejandro Mayorkas Tol head the Homeland Security Department. And Averil Haynes, for director of National intelligence are a lot of these intentionally a political picks or or lesser known names. Well, you're right that these they're not super bugs were the names, but there is a commonality in them in, but they all had, you know, fairly senior roles in the Obama administration, and so this really is sort of a revenge of the foreign policy establishment. And of course we're talking about. We're talking about foreign policy related jobs. So these are not like celebrity type folks. Uh, they are part of the sort of great suited bureaucracies that was often behind the scenes. But these people had sort of fairly senior roles in the Obama decision. Now they're going today be nominated for very, very senior positions in the defied an administration John Hudson with us on coma, news and more announcements to be made.
