A vignette from the article:
… people like Mansour, a 37-year-old engineer from Yemen, are met by a group of women, Canadians and Americans, that includes Janet McFetridge of Champlain.
“Do you need any warm socks?” McFetridge asked Mansour.
“No I have some in my luggage. Thank you. God bless you,” he replied.

Washington D.C. has ended a temporary residency program for almost 60,000 Haitians allowed to legally enter the United States following an earthquake in 2010. The affected Haitians will have to leave the U.S. by 2019. The program has also been revoked for 2,000 Nicaraguans and it’s unclear if other groups, including 300,000 Salvadorans, will be allowed to remain.
The net result is a continued flow of people crossing the border into Canada by foot. They are taking advantage of a footnote in a Canada-U.S. treaty that says foot-crossers won’t be turned back from Canada until their case is heard.
