Roxham Road reopens Quebec USA Border Illegal Border Crossing

Roxham Road reopens Quebec USA Border Illegal Border Crossing

secrecy surrounds testing, quarantine for illegal immigrants

NORTHERN, ONTARIO  ~~~   December 3, 2021 (LSNews)  Alexa Lavoie investigates the recently (officially) reopened Roxham Road, where she faced secrecy, surveillance and intimidation from authorities while trying to get answers on what sort of testing and quarantine is required for border crossers.

Roxham Road, the border where it is illegal to cross, but anyone claiming political asylum can do so.

Since 2017, the number of illegal border crossings to enter Canada has exploded. People were pouring in by the thousands, fearing they would be deported by the Trump administration. Between 2017 and early 2019, more than 50,000 people illegally crossed into Canada.

To maintain our border, we must count the staff working 24 hours a day, not only at the borders, but also in the quarantine locations. In addition, there are the costs of food, electricity, water, transportation, lodging, etc. — and all this is paid for by the taxpayers!

This represents millions of dollars per year.

With the pandemic, this border was supposed to have stopped its operations, which has apparently not been the case.

The border recently reopened; we went to verify if Roxham Road was still in action. Our investigation showed how the place is under high surveillance. Several people asked us to leave, some called the police, and others even used intimidation!

We captured images of containers with large amounts of luggage. We talked to several people to get some information about what was going on in the area and even took some aerial pictures to get a better look.
