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 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.
