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 9th, 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
A hot day with plenty of bugs! We entered the US at the Moores' crossing and the customs officer was unfazed by our brief explantation of our destination of Roxham Road.
Only three people - all adults - crossed into Canada while we were there.
First arrived a taxi from the bus station bringing two friendly young men about 30 years old. They were from Angola and Nigeria. They were not travelling together but had met "at the park" . One of them thanked us for our well wishes.
Shortly afterwards another taxi arrived with a young woman who was in a big hurry to enter Canada. She waited only long enough to listen to the RCMP officers and then crossed quickly.
RCMP officers respected their protocol.
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.
