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.

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 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.
