Sunday October 13th, 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
On a beautiful fall afternoon there was a rush of 15 people within about 20 minutes and then no one else showed up. Friends from Plattsburgh Cares also showed up unexpectedly.
The first taxi brought a man, woman and young boy. They spoke English but we did find out what country they came from.
The second taxi had 2 men, 2 women and a child .They spoke French. Next came a taxi bringing a woman from Rwanda who shared a taxi with a man from El Salvador. The last taxi brought a group of five men. We don't know where they were from.
Everyone was treated according to protocol by the RCMP.
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.
