Sunday April 8th, 2018. 3.45 - 5 pm. Roxham Road, USA.
A very damp cold day. A total of 19 people crossed into Canada today, mostly from Nigeria. First came a woman in her forties. Although she was not warmly dressed she was too stressed to stop and take some warm things. She crossed without incident. Next came a shuttle bus from the bus stop in Plattsburgh with three families: six adults and 12 children. Most of the children were age 5 or under and there were two adolescent boys. The RCMP officers only said what was necessary and did not attempt to coerce anyone into going to the official port of entry at Lacolle.
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.
