As President-elect Biden forges ahead with transition planning for his administration, Nicole Narea at Vox breaks down the top candidates rumored to be under consideration to head up the Department of Homeland Security.

The list includes Alejandro Mayorkas, former deputy secretary at DHS under President Obama, who is "best known as the architect of [DACA];" California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (who Fox News worries also is being considered for Attorney General); Rep. Val Demings (D-Florida); and Lisa Monaco, former Homeland Security adviser for President Obama.

Whatever the choice, the new AG will be very different from Jeff Sessions and Bill Barr.
