Price increases for migrants end with a penalty for a taxi owner.
The route to the south has been desperate for some time now. Undocumented immigrants in the United States have fled to Canadaby by taking busses to Plattsburgh, N.Y., and then calling cabs to a highway that ends in an informal crossroad. However, after a two-month review of the pricing policies of several taxi firms that carry passenger to the Champlain, N.Y. frontier, New York Prosecutor General Eric T. Schneiderman on Wednesday said he had received a ruling against Christopher Ray Crowningshield, the proprietor and owner of Northern Taxi.
Mr. Crowningshield had to give the state $2,500. They must also publish rates in the two cabs they operate, must not bill more than tenfold Plattsburgh's top rate, $7.50, and must call the Prosecutor General's offices each Tuesday when they pick up a person going to Roxham Road. There will be no hesitation in protecting our most fragile neighbours in Plattsburgh, New York City or anywhere else in New York," Mr Schneiderman said in an e-mail.
In addition, two other undertakings, C & L Taxi and Town Taxi and Medical Transport, had to pay lower penalties and were asked to change their tariffs. Mr. Schneiderman was vigorous in taking action against those trying to take the benefits of illegal immigration, whether in New York City or at the northeast tip of the state.
"It' s no wonder that a scared fugitive tribe could be paying an extravagant price to get to the frontier - but that doesn't make it legitimate, and we will keep on fighting those who want to exploit the worry about making money," he said. As he was reaching for a note on the number of his automobile, Mr. Crowningshield, 48, put the telephone down.
Mr. Glen Michaels, a Plattsburgh-based Deputy Prosecutor General, said Mr. Crowningshield had obeyed the order by putting price lists in his cabs. Mr Michaels said they said they'd said a cheque was coming. Last week's New York State Supreme Court ruling may have focused on what Mr Michaels said was the cruelest perpetrator, but he said the inquiry would be continued.
Crossing the frontier in Montreal, an immigrant attorney, Stéphane Handfield, welcomed the New York State move, but he was sceptical that it would be efficient to take action against what he saw as a commonality. He said not only that the taxis at Plattsburgh Central Terminal were awaiting their arrival, but he also had four customers say that they had been billed $1,000 by a taxi firm, which will take them directly from New York City to the now famous Roxham Road, the Chemin Roxham on the north side of the frontier.
The influx of immigrants across the Quebec frontier has almost trebled since January, according to the Canada ABC. Mr. Crowningshield collected an investigator for the Plattsburgh prosecution on March 21. Mr. Crowningshield, according to an sworn statement, although asked several occasions about the ticket price, informed the detective how much the trip would take after they were on their way to Roxham Road.
Northern Taxi earned 15,000 dollars in the first three month of this year, up from 7,000 dollars in the last half of 2016, Mr. Crowningshields first several month in office, according to judicial records. Earlier in February, in an interview when he was telling a New York Times journalist that his last name was Crowningshiele, Mr. Crowningshield said he demanded "about $75" - sometimes more or less, he said - although it "depends on how many people" were in the vehicle and where he collected them.
However, he acknowledged that bringing immigrants to the frontier was a profitable proposition rather than just bringing local people through Plattsburgh. "It'?s better cash, and it ain't much wear," said Mr. Crowningshield.
