Sunday, April 21st 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
Three people and a dog crossed into Canada today.
After about 20 minutes a taxi brought two young men from Yemen* each carrying a small backpack.
They were anxious to cross as quickly as possible and entered Canada without incident.
Not long after a second taxi brought a slender young woman with a backpack, a small dog and carrying case for the dog. She spoke very little English and told us she was from Russia. She crossed over with the dog without problem. The little dog was tied up outside, while she was interviewed by the RCMP in their building.
* Spotlight on Yemen: "The UN considers Yemen to be the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with 14 million people at risk of starvation and repeated outbreaks of deadly diseases like cholera. This crisis is linked to the armed conflict." See the 2019 Human Rights Watch Report on Yemen here:
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.
