National & Homeland Security, Fighting for First Responders


As the Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism and sitting member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Max is committed to ensuring that our nation is secure both at home and overseas. That is why he has fought to ensure tighter coordination among our national security agencies through the establishment of the Counter Terrorism Advisory Board, and has worked to sanction Iranian-backed terror groups operating in Iraq.

As the first post-9/11 combat veteran serving New York City in elected office, Max knows that our city is on the front-lines of the fight against terrorism. Max strongly supports the NYPD and all of New York’s first responders, and is fighting to ensure that they receive the resources they need to keep us all safe.

Max knows that our national security lies through working closely with our allies to confront the continued threat of terrorism at home, confront the rise of rivals abroad, and protect the sanctity of our democratic process from foreign interference. That is why since taking office, Max has supported legislation that will ensure proper oversight of decisions affecting American soldiers abroad, reassert Congress’ constitutional authority to declare war, and empower foreign partners to interdict terrorists travelling to and from warzones. Furthermore, Max is concerned at the global rise in anti-Semitism, and was proud to support efforts to monitor and counter anti-Semitism around the world.
