Sunday, June 16th 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
A total of seven people crossed into Canada today: six men and one woman.
A shuttlebus arrived about 20 minutes after we arrived bringing six men aged from about 20 to 30 years old. Three men were of African origin, possibly Nigerian and the other three individuals were from Turkey, El Salvador and China. They did not engage with us before crossing over.
Later, a car drove up with 2 men and a young woman in her 20s who was from Liberia. Her older brother and a friend had come to accompany her. She was the only one to cross over. They were very appreciative of our gesture to be there.
The RCMP officers were very appropriate with clear communication, making sure the refugees understood English.
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.
