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 February 18th, 3.45 - 5.30 pm : Roxham Road, Champlain USA.
A mild day above freezing. A total of 16 (6 children and 10 adults) people crossed over into Canada. One person was from the Democratic Republic of Congo, several were from Nigeria and three were from Haiti. One Haitian woman told the RCMP officer that she had a friend in Canada and the officer told her to go to the Lacolle border because she would 'see her friend sooner'. Another officer was quite aggressive in her manner.
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.
