(Congressional Agenda) – Rick Harrison of ‘Pawn Stars’ fame has revealed that his son, Adam Harrison, passed away last Friday at the age of 39, as the result of a drug overdose. He asserted that much of the blame for his son’s addiction came as a result of the border crisis where cartels are bringing in tons of fentanyl into the United States. Harrison criticized the Biden administration for their lack of action in handling the situation, saying “we must do better” to control the influx of illegal aliens and the drugs they are smuggling into our country.
Liberals assume that if you are against illegal aliens swarming into the country en masse, it’s because you dislike the color of said individuals’ skin. That’s not the case. In fact, it has absolutely nothing at all to do with why we need to have our border sealed off and illegals immediately deported back to their country of origin. The case of Adam Harrison is a prime example of why something needs to be done to shut down the massive caravans of illegals at our border.
Desperate folks looking to escape horrific conditions in their home countries are not the only ones coming into the U.S. In fact, that’s probably a very small number of individuals crossing the border. Cartels are bringing their drugs into the country so they can make a profit. They don’t care about people like Harrison. If some people die, oh well. Someone new will take their place in time. They only see human beings as dollar signs, nothing more.
“Yes, I can confirm Adam died from a fentanyl overdose,” Rick Harrison remarked in comments given to TMZ. “The fentanyl crisis in this country must be taken more seriously. It seems it is just flowing over the borders and nothing is being done about it. We must do better.”
“‘Pawn Stars,’ a hit reality TV star that debuted in 2009, chronicles the Harrison family’s experiences running their Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. Adam was not featured on the program but worked at the store before the show launched,” The Western Journal reported. “While deciding to take drugs is an individual’s choice, the Biden administration’s border security failures are fueling a deadly nationwide fentanyl epidemic.”
The article then stated, “Rick Harrison joins a growing legion of Americans who are demanding that President Joe Biden stop enabling the fentanyl crisis by leaving our southern border unsecured. In October, Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds welcomed back National Guard troops she had deployed to secure the Texas border pursuant to an emergency request from fellow Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.”
Reynolds declared that the mission was necessary in Iowa, which, by the way, is a total of 13 hours from the southern border in Texas, because the state was being ravaged by a drug epidemic, fueled via product being brought into the country by illegal aliens.
Iowa deployed 109 soldiers and 31 Troopers to the Southern Border because protecting Iowans begins at the border.
Drugs have one degree of separation from Mexico to Iowa. In just 3 months, Iowa DPS has seized:

In August of 2022, the Drug Enforcement Agency put out a warning to the general public about a new tactic being employed by dealers and cartel members. The miscreants were taking the fentanyl and making it bright colors in order to target children. Again, thugs like this do not care how old a potential customer is or how the product might ruin their lives or even take them out. All that matters is making money and staying in power. And as long as the border is wide open, we are providing them access to a massive customer base.
“Rainbow fentanyl — fentanyl pills and powder that come in a variety of bright colors, shapes and sizes — is a deliberate effort by drug traffickers to drive addiction amongst kids and young adults,” DEA Administrator Anne Milgram went on to say in a statement. “The men and women of the DEA are relentlessly working to stop the trafficking of rainbow fentanyl and defeat the Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for the vast majority of the fentanyl that is being trafficked in the United States.”
The Rainbow fentanyl has been discovered in a total of 18 different states across the United States.

The Western Journal noted, “Biden’s inexcusable encouragement of daily border invasions and the resulting fentanyl crisis are having deadly, widespread consequences that directly and indirectly affect all Americans. A nonstop barrage of illegal aliens and illicit drugs is accelerating the collapse of the United States by endangering public safety, draining public resources and jeopardizing national security.”
There is a two step solution to this problem: build the wall, enforce the law.
Let it be so.
