.@senatemajldr on the U.S. Capitol Attack: "The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people." https://t.co/QIeviyHkl3

“Fed lies.” https://t.co/TNP1EbWbql

Mayorkas says CBP and ICE play "critical roles." "I would not abolish them."

Mayorkas says he does not support defunding ICE.

Pressed by Senator Lankford, Mayorkas does not say whether he would continue or halt the current CDC-authorized policy of rapidly expelling migrants and asylum-seekers from US borders without court hearings. He says “he looks forward to studying” the policy.

Mayorkas goes on to say he admires Sen. McCain's position that the border doesn't require "a monolithic answer." Lankford agrees that physical barriers are not necessary across the entire border, especially in areas with rough terrains. Mayorkas says he will study the issue.

Lankford asks if Mayorkas believes any physical barriers (BORDER WALL) should be removed or dismantled. Mayorkas says he hasn't "looked at that specific question." That is odd given how many times his transition team has been asked that question.

Ali Mayorkas is currently testifying before the Senate homeland security committee. Sen. Rob Portman starts his opening remarks by noting "recently the department has struggled due to a lack of senate confirmed leadership." Here's more on Mayorkas https://t.co/psHOGeagcJ

Officials have tagged him with the “dubious distinction of the worst secretary of state in American history. That will come back to haunt him as he considers running for president in 2024...” https://t.co/zvM8g6pbXw @jakesNYT

"...Pompeo’s unflinching promotion of a twice-impeached president is part of a careful balancing act designed to lay future claim to Trump’s large and loyal political base while retaining credibility among the GOP establishment." https://t.co/yqdDBdCl3z @John_Hudson

NEW: SHELLY SILVER, the ex-NY assembly speaker, who was convicted of corruption & sentenced to prison last summer, is being considered for clemency. It would be a slap at @PreetBharara, who prosecuted Silver, was fired by TRUMP & became a leading critic. https://t.co/DJbtiFRp2O

A 9-yr-old Haitian boy is expected to be separated by @CBP from his 19-yr-old brother he was traveling w/to the US.
