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 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 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.
