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, January 27th, 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
A cold sunny afternoon. While we were there two groups of people arrived at Roxham and a total of 6 people crossed into Canada: three adults and three children.
The first taxi brought a man from Haiti and his daughter of about 7 years old. He was anxious to cross and did not need extra warm things. The officer spoke to him in French and they crossed without incident.
Later a taxi arrived with a family from Nicaragua: mother, father, 8 year old boy and a baby about 10 months or so old. We gave a couple of warm things. Mom was carrying the baby and she was very scared. Before she went to the border, she said 'God bless you.' and exchanged a hug with one of the volunteers.
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.
