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.

Sunday, September 30, 2018. Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
A chilly autumn day. A total of eight people crossed into Canada while we were there (six adults and two small children). The first taxi arrived bringing just one young man from Haiti who spoke only French. He crossed quickly into Canada. Next came a shuttle with 5 adults and two children from Nigeria. There was a young single woman with a baby and little girl who had to struggle with her children, stroller and luggage. There were three single men. Finally there was a single older woman who was very worried. According to the shuttle driver she had already gone to the official border and been refused entry into Canada due to the STCA.
There were four RCMP officers dealing with the asylum seekers. They were consistently polite and agreeable.
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.
