Veterans and Military Families

Alex is committed to supporting all those who have fought for our nation’s freedom. From improving immigration services for military families to addressing veteran homelessness and cleaning up harmful PFAS “forever chemicals” on military bases, Alex is working to ensure that service members, veterans, and their families receive the support they deserve. Because Alex understands the sacred duty we have to care for our veterans and their families, he is committed to guaranteeing that our veterans receive the full benefits and care that they have earned.

In response to California’s urgent wildfire situation, Alex secured key provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act to ensure the National Guard and federal resources are fully aligned to help states respond to emergencies and wildfires.
