Sunday, February 4th, 2018. 3.30 pm- 5pm. Roxham Road, USA.
A mild day. Only five people crossed into Canada. First came a Columbian family of four: young parents with two small children about 3 and 5 years old. Then came a single Nigerian man who said he had been living in the US for a while and he could not go back to his country and did not feel safe in the US. Everyone was happy to accept some gloves and scarves gloves. The RCMP officers made brief statements to those crossing and did not attempt to convince people to go to the official border crossing.
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.
