The Whallonsburg Grange Lyceum spring series “Hidden in Plain Sight” continues to look at well-known things from unusual angles and examines objects and ideas that are hidden from plain view. The next in a series of lectures, will be the examination of irregular border crossings in a local town and the response of the community. The presentation “Roxham Road: Irregular Border Crossings and Local Response” will be held on Tuesday, February 25th at 7:30pm.
Roxham Road, a small dead-end street in Champlain, New York, has become a major issue in US and Canadian politics over the last three years. SUNY Plattsburgh professors Amy Mountcastle and Liz Onasch join Champlain Mayor Janet McFetridge to discuss the Roxham Road border crossing into Canada, which has been used by 48,000 asylum-seekers.
