Sunday April 14, 2019. Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
A crisp spring day - still quite chilly. Three people crossed into Canada today while we were there.
The first taxi brought a young woman from Zimbabwe. She was anxious and totally focused on crossing as quickly as possible. She acknowledged that she understood the RCMP officer's message and quickly crossed over.
A second taxi arrived with a mother and son (aged about 14) from Nicaragua, and not warmly dressed. They were very nervous but very friendly and were grateful to receive some warm things. The mom was a bit surprised to hear it could still be cold here in April. When we said that this was El Norte , she smiled to hear some Spanish. They entered Canada without incident.
RCMP officers stuck to their protocol and behaved appropriately.
The border visit reports are written by the volunteers who were at the border on that day.
