It appears two members of the Burundi Robotics Team from Africa ditched the FIRST Global Challenge robotics competition in Washington DC on Thursday to seek asylum in Canada.

From Fox News:
Two members of an African robotics team who were reported missing from an international robotics competition in Washington, D.C. were spotted crossing into Canada on Thursday morning, authorities said.

The D.C. Police Department told Fox News that Don Ingabira, 16, and Audrey Mwamikazi, 17, were seen crossing the northern U.S. border into Canada. Authorities don't suspect any foul play in the disappearance.
The two teenagers were part of a six-member team from the small east African country of Burundi who were in the nation's capital for the inaugural even of the FIRST Global Challenge robotics competition. They were reported missing late Tuesday night.

WLJA reported the other four teens were reportedly found with family members living in the United States.
I'm sure Justin Trudeau will be happy to give them asylum, seeing as how he recently said immigrants to Canada are more Canadian than actual Canadians.
