>> Eight asylum seekers crossing the US Canada border just in time. The latest in refugees pouring over the border as the US looks to tighten it's immigration and refugee policy. A Reuters photographer capturing images of the group jumping a snowy gully on Friday followed closely by a US customs and border patrol officer.
The four adults and four children said to be from Sudan, had arrived at the border in Champlain, New York, in a taxi. The border patrol officer had seized their passports, and was questioning a man in the taxi when the eight fled. The officer managed to catch up to one of the men fleeing.
That men then appeared to grab their passports and cross into Canada. All eight were helped through the snow and taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as the US officer watched from south of the border.
