Sunday March 31, 2019. Evening. Roxham Road, USA.
When we were entering the US at a local border crossing there was a delay. We said we were going to greet refugees at Roxham Road and the custom's officer decided to call someone to ask if it was OK for us to enter. The call took a while and he must have been reassured, because he let us enter.
At 6:15 a taxi pulled up with a lone passenger: a tall black man who looked about 40 years old. He was not dressed for the weather but did not take any warm things. He was very anxious to cross: hurriedly getting his luggage and going to the border. He answered the RCMP in English and entered Canada without incident.
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.
