A proud son of immigrants from Mexico, Alex believes that our country is a nation of immigrants and has prioritized immigration reform since the day he was sworn in to the U.S. Senate. Alex knows firsthand the enormous contributions that immigrants make to our communities and economy. As the first ever Latino to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, and Border Safety, he is leading the fight for immigration reform. The very first bill Alex introduced as a U.S. Senator would create a pathway to citizenship for the immigrant essential workers who have bravely worked on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
