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, 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 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.
