Sunday, December 16, 2018. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
During the two hours we were there only one taxi arrived, the shuttle bus which brought only four people. They had not come from the airport though. They were a family of four from Nicaragua who spoke a little English. A mother, father and two boys aged about 6 and 12. Everyone was glad to take hats and mittens. The two boys were anxious. When we explained they would be arrested the woman looked worried but was reassured when we explained it was a temporary measure. The RCMP stuck to their protocol and the family crossed without incident.
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.
