Sunday December 3rd, 2017. Roxham Road, Champlain NYS. 3.45 - 4.45pm. It was a milder day. About 21-22 people crossed into Canada. Everyone appreared to be of sub-Saharan African origin. They came in four different arrivals. First was a single man from Nigeria who arrive in a taxi. Next was the shuttle from Plattsburgh Airport that brought two families: one family of four (parents and two children under 10) and another family of five (parents, an adolescent and two younger children). A taxi then brought three adults (one women, two men) and an adolescent. Finally two taxis arrived carrying three women, two adolescents and a small child. We did not hear the RCMP try to re-direct any of these refugees to the Lacolle border.
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.
