ATHENS, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) continued his three-day tour across Southern and Southeast Ohio by touring BuckEye Cam, a company that makes long range wireless cameras, sensors, repeaters, and echoes that are used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to help secure our borders. Senator Portman recently visited our southern border where he toured the new Donna Processing Facility where families and unaccompanied children are being processed, and the McAllen Border Patrol Station, where single men and the women are being processed. He toured the facilities and spoke to officials and migrants, and attended a roundtable discussion with Border Patrol agents and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leadership on the ground. He discussed his visit in an op-ed in the Cincinnati Enquirer. 

“I had the opportunity to see firsthand how BuckEye Cam, a successful Ohio business, is using technology to help secure our borders,” said Portman.Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and I will continue to fight for pro-growth policies – like tax reform – that help Ohio small businesses grow and thrive.”

Traveling more than 750 miles over three days in Southern and Southeast Ohio, Portman will participate in workforce development roundtables touting his JOBS Act, see an oil production facility, tour several Ohio small businesses which manufacture technology being used to help secure our southern border, and participate in agricultural tours.
