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.

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..

There will be a several groups of outs outside groups that are from for and against the the nominee and and they'll be heard Trump tomorrow. Brian Naylor NPR Washington correspondent. Thanks a lot. All right. Thanks, Lisa. And now to that anonymous op Ed in the New York Times from a Trump appointee claiming to be one of several administration officials secretly working to thwart the president's impulses. The president is calling for the times. To turn over the offered author to the government for security purposes. But the allegations aligned with the portrait of the White House painted in Bob Woodward's forthcoming book NPR, White House reporter Asia is here high Asia high. So the author says that there are unsung heroes who have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the west wing for those who haven't read it yet. Just given example, the author gives. So some of the things that the author talked about was the idea of expelling these Russian diplomats after there was an ex Russian spy who was poisoned in Britain and that President Trump was reluctant to expel so many. I think the US expelled about sixty, but he was kind of boxed in by his staff who believed that that needed to happen. Yeah. The the author writes, his national security team knew better such actions had to be taken to hold Moscow accountable. Look, the author also describes him or herself as conservative says. He or she supports the policies being enacted but describes to track presidency on the one. You have the president's comments. He says things, but the other track the official policies guided by the staff. And as we hear in the Woodward book often saying one thing to the president, yes, we'll kill Assad in Syria, but then doing another. Does this picture accord with what you know of the White House. Is it has been talked about often how President Trump's language in the things that he says, don't necessarily match up with what actually happens at the White House. In a good example was the NATO meeting that happened over the summer. President Trump seemed to be talking about how NATO everybody else wasn't pulling their weight and all of these things where you had the actual documents at the US signed onto it NATO, it really strengthen NATO. There wasn't any of that, and it had very tough language about Russia. And as you know, also on that trip, President Trump met with Putin and had a much kinder words for a him. Then what was held in that the what was held in the agreement that was assigned it a sign that NATO. So there have been all these examples where President Trump says certain things, and then the actions don't really match up. There's a lot of anger from the left as well at this idea that there is an unelected government. And that there are people willing to talk about it too. As we've been saying today, authors and newspapers, but not to others. And of course, much of the comes from President Trump. He reacted to the bed and an event with sheriff's yesterday slamming the times the failing New York Times has an anonymous aditorial. Can you believe it anonymous meeting, gutless, gutless editorial. We're doing a great job I, you should stay with that reaction. How has the president responded since then? A lot of it has been outlining all the great things that he feels that the president that he has done as president, the the great economy, how you know laws that they've been able to pass tax cuts, things of that nature basically making the case that it can't be true that that I have a bad leadership style or that I'm incompetent because look at how all the things that he argues that his administration has accomplished. He also tweeted out this question of treason presumably asking, what did this person commit treason?.
