Tuesday, November 28th, 2017. Roxham Road, Champlain NYS. A bitter cold wind blew at the border as the sun was going down. We met with a member of Plattsburg Cares. There was also a reporter from Vermont Public Radio doing a story about the refugees. He spoke with some of the five people (four men, one woman) who arrived in three taxis. Three people identified their countries of origin as: Yemen, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi. The man from Yemen, wearing only a hoodie, hestiates and then accepts a warm hat saying God Bless You. All five people crossed into Canada. Here is the link to the Vermont Public Radio coverage from that day: digital.vpr.net/post/other-side-roxham-road-canada-grapples-border-refugees#stream/0
The border visit reports are written by the volunteers who were at the border on that day. There are about 15 active volunteers in our border visit committee.
