Minnesota GOP Rep. Jim Hagedorn has died after a two-year battle with kidney cancer, according to a statement Friday morning from his wife.
The 59-year-old had served in the House since 2019, winning a district that his father, Tom Hagedorn, represented in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Rep. Jim Hagedorn slammed President Joe Biden’s “America last” policies after visiting the southern border last week.
“It’s like they flipped a switch and they had open borders. Before you know it, catch-and-release is back and people are literally, for all intents and purposes, being invited to the border because they know they’re going to be processed and then sent deep into the United States, and given a lot of free things as they go,” Hagedorn told Newsmax.
