On this blog, we used to post information about our visits to the border at Roxham Road, USA side.
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.
Sur ce blogue, nous avons affiché des informations sur nos visites à la frontière, Roxham Road, États Unis. Depuis la fermeture de Roxham Road le vendredi 24 mars 2023, nous essayons de tenir un répertoire des informations que nous avons cueillies sur les réfugiés qui ont été renvoyés aux États-Unis.
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 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.
