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.

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 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.
