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 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 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.
