Thailand Confirms Illegal Worker Crackdown

Tuesday 17 Jun 2014
10:09 pm


Thailand and Cambodia have agreed to confirm "rumours" of a
crackdown against illegal migrant workers by the new Thai junta
after the exodus of nearly 180,000 Cambodian labourers.

The numbers of labourers fleeing home soared after the Thai
military regime warned last week that illegal foreign workers face
arrest and deportation.

The junta has since confirmed that there is indeed a "crackdown"
and blamed the Cmbodians for the exodus.

The International Organisation for Migration has previously
estimated that around 180,000 undocumented Cambodian workers live
in Thailand, so it is unclear exactly how many still remain.

Migrants from neighbouring Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar play a key
role in Thai industries such as seafood, agriculture and
construction, but often lack work permits.

The junta planned to arrest all illegal immigrants, and deport all
legal immigrants as it said "Thais can and are willing to do these
dirty jobs".

Myanmar also cracks down on Thai workers in Myanmar. Lao PDR should do the
same, kick all Thai contractors out of their hydropower plants. Who will be
the loser? Thailand.

This radical Prayuth is a top-notch crook. He didn't like the Cambodian
protesters helping Yinkluck. Let's get rid of him and this Hitler Reposter
(Amsterdam-it).
