Sunday, June 10th 2018. Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
We arrived at Roxham early. Around 4.10pm a taxi from Plattsburgh arrived with a mother and her three children who were originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Next came a single elderly woman from an African country. She appeared quite afraid. Both women raised their arms while crossing the border.
With the family, the RCMP officer stuck to the protocol however, the officer gave the single elderly woman a long lecture about the 'illegal' crossing, saying that she would be arrested and that she had the right to a lawyer.
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.
