Sunday, August 19th, 2018. Afternoon. Roxham Road, United States.
We arrived at the border at 2.25pm. Crickets singing, ragweed in bloom. Very quiet until 3.45 pm when a taxi arrived with a family of four from Nigeria. A man, woman and two teenage daughters. We offered them water but they already had their own bottles.
At the same time a woman who introduced herself as a social documentarian who has traveled to many countries photographing non-violent protests. She took a photo of the family as they crossed (without incident).
Soon after a single man of African descent came in a taxi and crossed quickly. At 4pm another taxi with a single man from Haiti. He also crossed without incident. RCMP officers respected their protocol.
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.
