Sunday, May 20th, 2018: Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
A warm sunny afternoon. Eleven people crossed over into Canada. The RCMP first asked people to read the information on the sign and to tell them when they are finished reading to tell them. At that point they said: This is your choice but you will be arrested. First came an Angolan family of four (mother, father, a baby and little girl). Then a lone woman from Egypt arrived. After that a Nigerian family of five (parents and three small children) and a single Nigerian man arrived. Everyone crossed over without incident.
The RCMP officers were courteous and told the BnB volunteers that the average numbers of people crossing each day is between 30 and 40 which is less than were crossing in the winter.
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.
