Roxham Road, where Quebec and New York state meet, has fallen out of the public eye recently.
Corporate and government media have turned up their noses at the unmitigated border crisis that has been growing since the spot became popular with illegal immigrants in 2015.
Speaking with the owner of the southernmost property on the infamous road, she notes that in just the last two weeks, the problem has rapidly escalated. As for a reason, she can not say.
In the single random hour that I stood near the white obelisk alongside marking the 49th Parallel, I saw half a dozen single men cross the ditch that separates Trudeau Land from Trump Land.
These illegals are booked, their bags searched, then they are put in a bus operated by a security guard.
This bus driver was not with the RCMP, to say the least.
While he was having a cigarette break between busloads of illegals, he spoke with me about what the type of people he has been ordered to chauffeur. He said that they were usually well off, taking a flight from the USA to a nearby airport. They then hop in a taxi and waltz across the ditch.
Roxham Road is home to one of the most lucrative ditches one could illegally cross: The driver notes that they often come with no money, expecting “a cheque” on arrival.
