We arrived shortly after 3:00 pm. The first taxi arrived at 3:35 bringing a young couple from Zimbabwe. They had quite a lot of luggage but the taxi driver didn’t leave the car or open the trunk of the car for them. The RCMP officer was polite and to the point, telling them that they would be arrested if they crossed. They proceeded calmly.
We waited for an hour before another taxi arrived with a young Haitian man. He was quite nervous and didn’t seem to understand that he could cross after the RCMP had finished explaining that he would be arrested. He looked back towards us and the taxi driver. We said it was okay to proceed if he understood what the officer had said. Then he crossed.
The border visit reports are written by the volunteers who were at the border on that day.
