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 July 15th, 2018. Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
Crossing the border we were asked many questions as to why we were going to Roxham Road, including asking if we were reporters.
We arrived at 2.35pm just as a taxi was leaving. We asked the RCMP Officers but they did not want to tell us how many people had been in the taxi. They asked us questions about why were were there and what we were doing.
At 3.45pm a taxi arrived with a Nigerian man and woman. The woman was quite nervous but smiled at our welcome and gratefully took some ice cold water. No one else came.
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.
