Sunday, June 2nd 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
It was a muggy afternoon. The mosquitoes were out in force!
Nine people crossed into Canada today. First came a taxi bringing an exhausted group of people from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The group included two adult men, a little boy about six years old and a woman carrying a small girl about 2 years old. The woman looked very stressed and distraught.
They entered Canada without incident.
Next came a taxi bringing three people: a single woman of African origin who spoke French and was struggling with two large suitcases and a friendly young couple from Columbia carrying only backpacks. The couple spoke some English and were happy to exchange a few words. They all crossed into Canada without incident.
Very soon after this a taxi brought an anxious young man from Angola who went to the border's edge. No RCMP officer appeared so he crossed over and went to the RCMP building.
With the first two groups the RCMP respected their protocol.
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.
