Refugee Crisis

Volunteers are greeting the waves of migrants passing through the North Country on their way to Canada, providing them with information, food, warm clothing, and words of encouragement. More than 17,000 immigrants have used a remote road in Northern Clinton County to cross illegally into Canada in 2017. With a nationwide crackdown on immigration, many face deportation in the coming months and fearful of what may happen if they remained in the United States.
