Since the closure of Roxham Road on Friday 24 March 2023, we're attempting to keep a log of the info we have about refugees who have been returned to the US.

Sunday April 15th, 2018. 3.45 - 5 pm. Roxham Road, USA.
A very cold rainy day. A total of 11 people crossed into Canada today. There were two families from Nigeria, one with three children and the other with two. Two single men crossed separately, one from Eritrea and the other from Nigeria. When the Eritrean man arrived at the border in a taxi, he was very nervous. A Bridges Not Borders volunteer spoke with him briefly and told him 'Not to worry, it will be ok'. At which point an RCMP officer told her that: 'If you go on talking to him, we can arrest you.' The officer kept the Eritrean man standing at the border for a long time while he repeatedly told the refugee that he would be much better off going to the Lacolle port of entry. The officers also attempted strongly to convince the other people crossing that they would be better off going to Lacolle.

The earlier border visit reports were written by the volunteers who were at the border on that day, the later updates about the situation in the US are an attempt to keep a log of what we find out through our own visits in the US, or through contacts in the US.
