Rick Harrison, widely recognized from the History Channel's popular reality show "Pawn Stars," attributed the border crisis to the recent death of his son, Adam.

Speaking to the New York Post, Harrison said that his 39-year-old son, Adam, passed away due to a fentanyl overdose. It is reported that deaths from fentanyl are increasing across the country, and the surge of this drug is linked to illegal drug trafficking from abroad.

“Yes, I can confirm Adam died from a fentanyl overdose,” he told The Post in a statement on Monday.

“The fentanyl crisis in this country must be taken more seriously,” he said. “It seems it is just flowing over the borders and nothing is being done about it. We must do better.”

Harrison's representative verified that Adam passed away last week in Las Vegas.

“You will always be in my heart! I love you,” Harrison shared on Instagram alongside a photo of himself and his son together.

“Wax wtf I will always love you bubba,” Adam’s brother Corey, 40, posted on social media alongside a photo of him and his brother from childhood.

"Pawn Stars" is a reality television series that airs on the History Channel. It features the daily operations of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nevada, run by the Harrison family.

The show focuses on the interactions between the staff and their customers, who bring in a variety of items to sell or pawn, ranging from rare artifacts and antiques to unusual collectibles. Key elements of the show include the negotiation process, historical background of the items, and the professional assessment of their value.

Adam was not featured in the show and appeared uninvolved in the family's pawn shop business, established in 1989. Harrison operates the shop alongside Corey and his lifelong friend, Austin "Chumlee" Russell.
