From day one of the Biden Administration, we have experienced an absolute crisis on our southern border. An unprecedented volume of illegal migrants is coming into our country, along with an unmitigated flow of dangerous narcotics. Yet, the president and Speaker Pelosi refuse to acknowledge that this is an emergency and devote the full resources necessary to secure our borders and maintain our national security. #BidenBorderCrisis

Happy to have the opportunity to tour Lonsdale Packaging earlier this week. Small businesses like Lonsdale Packaging are the job-creating backbone of our communities. Unfortunately, bad government policies in Washington, D.C. and St. Paul are exacerbating a serious labor shortage. I support measures to end the lockdowns and create incentives for employees to return to the workplace.

Opinion | Biden’s Cradle-to-Grave Government

According to President Biden, BIG GOVERNMENT is back! During his recent speech to Congress, he outlined another $2 trillion plan that will dramatically expand the role and influence of the federal government. His and Speaker Pelosi’s goal are to put the government at the center of all of the major decisions of family life. This proposal is rife with reckless spending and will stick taxpayers with a bill that will take generations to pay off.

Yesterday, I visited Rice County and met with residents, local government officials, and business interests. Thanks to Lonsdale Chamber for the terrific meeting during which we discussed the need to fully reopen Minnesota’s small businesses and schools, and reinstate sound unemployment compensation policies to incentivize employees to return to work.

04/30/2021

During his speech last night, President Biden talked about the threat America faces from countries like China, Russia, and Iran. But instead of demonstrating our country’s strength to our adversaries, President Biden has shown weakness that has only emboldened them:
❌ Rejoined the Iran Nuclear Agreement
❌ Proposed cuts to DOD and Homeland Security
❌ Policy of non-confrontation with Chinese Communist Party

I will continue to support policies that strengthen our national security, protect our interests and the interests of our allies, and put America first.

Drug Cartels Aren’t Just a Border Problem | National Review

Check out this piece from U.S. Representative Chip Roy Press Office – it’s a great look at the #BidenBorderCrisis and what it means for the nation:

“This is no longer just a border problem; it’s a problem for the whole country. There are dangerous people doing horrible things to human beings for profit further and further away from our border and closer and closer to where most of us live.”

https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/04/drug-cartels-arent-just-a-border-problem/

These dangerous organizations are making further inroads in the nation. It’s time to act.

Hagedorn Statement on President Biden's Address to Congress

Tonight, we heard from President Biden on the state of our nation, one hundred days into his administration. The president painted a picture full of promise, but the reality is that under his failed leadership, we are in an America more divided than ever.

President Biden talked a lot about help for people who have been left behind, but the brand of radical socialism he and the other Democrat politicians are trying to impose will, in many respects, destroy our country. Radical notions like packing the Supreme Court with liberal activist judges, open borders and amnesty, and gun control are an assault on the founding principles of our country.

I will continue to stand up for conservative values by voting for measures to put America and Americans first. I’ll always advocate for free markets, protect our communities, defend our inalienable constitutional rights, and sustain southern Minnesota’s way of life.

At today’s House Small Business Committee meeting, I highlighted the steps we need to take to make sure small business are offered the best opportunities possible. What American small businesses need right now are commonsense policies that grow business, limit regulation, and incentivize job-seekers, not higher taxes, jobs being sent overseas, and more red tape.

Prior to youth sports pause, state officials admitted to lack of evidence, emails suggest - Alpha News

There is absolutely no reason Minnesota’s kids should have had to give up sports. Governor Tim Walz and power-hungry Democrats in St. Paul insisted that it was necessary to shut down youth sports and rob students of their high school milestones for “safety,” but it was nothing more than a power grab.

https://alphanewsmn.com/prior-to-youth-sports-pause-state-officials-admitted-to-lack-of-evidence-emails-suggest/

State officials were privately scrambling for evidence to support the restrictions, at times admitting that “there isn’t much."

Tomorrow night, President Joe Biden will give an address to Congress on his first 100 days in office. So far, all he has to show for it is a disaster on our southern border, more executive orders than any of his predecessors in recent memory and directing trillions of dollars to favored interests. The Biden-Pelosi agenda means open borders, higher taxes, and crippling debt for the American people. As your representative, I will continue to reject these radical policies, and stand up for our communities, small businesses, and southern Minnesota’s way of life.

Happy to have the support of the National Association of Home Builders on my legislation, the American Workforce Empowerment Act. As the American workforce rebounds from the pandemic, we will see increased need for skilled workers to meet rising manufacturing, shipping, and construction demand. This legislation will open opportunities for students in non-degree technical training certificate programs and strengthen America’s skilled labor workforce.

Welcome home to the more than 700 soldiers of the Minnesota National Guard who are returning after an 11-month deployment in the Horn of Africa.

The Mankato-based 2nd Battalion, 135th Infantry was part of Task Force Bayonet, whose mission was to provide force protection through security forces in the region of Djibouti, Somalia, and Kenya, and to ensure the success of the East Africa Response Force.

HEAT Members Blast Biden for Moving Ahead with Job-Killing Climate Plan

Last week, I joined House Republican Whip Steve Scalise and more than 25 of my colleagues on the House Energy Action Team in condemning President Biden for pledging the United States to costly, ineffective, and unrealistic emissions commitments in the disastrous Paris Climate Accord. This agreement punishes the American people while not accomplishing anything – except destroying thousands of energy jobs and making us more dependent on countries like China.

President Joe Biden plans on hiking taxes on capital gains to fund his social programs. These tax hikes and the elimination of the stepped-up basis make it extremely difficult for families to keep their farms and for new farmers to join the agriculture industry. It will discourage investment in the farms and small businesses that build our economy and create jobs. Democrat tax hikes are bad for farmers, bad for businesses, and bad for America.

GOP Senators Release Outline of $568 Billion Infrastructure Plan

We all agree that America’s infrastructure is in desperate need of investment. Yesterday, GOP Senators unveiled an infrastructure plan that costs a fraction of President Biden’s $2.3 billion dollar plan, of which only 6% goes to roads and bridges. It is possible for both parties of Congress to work together to find solutions to America’s infrastructure needs. A bipartisan infrastructure package is possible, but only if Democrats will negotiate in good faith.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/gop-senators-release-outline-of-568-billion-infrastructure-plan-11619107799

The two-page Republican plan, a narrower alternative to President Biden’s $2.3 trillion plan, doesn’t provide specifics on how it would cover the cost of the bill, a central issue in the talks.

Hagedorn Announces USDA Grant to Albert Lea Business

Happy to announce that K&W Stores of MN, Inc. in Albert Lea has recently received a $30,000 grant from USDA Rural Development as part of their Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program.

This investment will be used to replace two fuel dispensers at K&W’s Fairmont location, increasing the amount of ethanol sold by nearly 134,000 gallons per year. During my time in Congress, I have been a strong advocate of the biofuels industry, which creates jobs in rural communities and generates demand for American farmers.
