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, December 1st 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
A cold, wintry day. We arrived at about 3:30 pm and waited for about an hour.
Finally one taxi arrived, bringing two men who had got off the bus in Plattsburgh. They were from Nicaragua and Venezuela, and grateful for the scarves we gave them and for the friendly welcome. The bus had been delayed because of a snowstorm, and other buses had been cancelled according to the taxi driver.
The RCMP reception was according to protocol and relaxed/friendly. We left at 4:50 pm.
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.
