Driven by the tragic loss of his youngest son to fentanyl poisoning, Indiana GOP congressional candidate Jamison Carrier is stepping forward to prevent others from enduring similar heartbreak, directly attributing America’s border crisis to the policies of the Biden administration.

“There’s a very specific date that we can track our border issues to, and that is the inauguration of President Joe Biden. That is when the border went out of control. President Trump had it down to the lowest numbers that it had been in 45 years,” the political newcomer said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”

“The number one thing that we can do, because obviously President Biden doesn’t care about it, we’ve got to get President Trump re-elected because we know that he will take care of the border situation, just like he did before.”

Carrier, whose son, Joey, succumbed to fentanyl poisoning nearly two years ago, is eyeing the Hoosier State’s 6th congressional district after former Vice President Mike Pence’s brother Rep. Greg Pence announced he would not seek re-election. 

The primary face-off for the solidly Republican seat is slated for May 7.

Meanwhile, the southern border crisis has propelled the fentanyl epidemic to catastrophic proportions, with deaths from last year alone climbing to over 112,000 for the first time in history, according to CDC data.

Like others lost to the deadly drug, Carrier said his son was someone everyone loved – a hard worker, an outdoorsman, and an “incredible person” who lived a full life. 

“We lost him way too soon… and he had struggles with addiction, but he certainly never dreamed that fentanyl would be in anything,” he told guest host Rachel Campos-Duffy.

“It’s a tragedy for him.”

His message to families is an urgent warning against apathy, a call to action that people protect their loved ones and take precautions to avoid heartbreak.

“To children, I would say please don’t play around. It’s way too serious and all of us are impacted by this in one way or another,” he continued.

“The reason that we’re running is, I had a mentor that told me a lot of people think hate is the opposite of love. He said apathy is the opposite of love. So we’ve got to put our love into action. We love deeply. We have to act.”
