Immigration officials in Chonburi, Thailand, conducted a raid on a labor camp at the Chak Nok Reservoir near Pattaya on June 19th. As a result, six undocumented workers from Cambodia were arrested.

 

The operation, spearheaded by Pol. Col. Naphatphong Kositsuriyamanee, the Chief of Chonburi Immigration Police, was triggered by local residents' tip-offs about illegal workers operating in the camp.

 

The task force discovered a total of 20 migrant workers during the operation. Out of them, six Cambodians, aged 19 to 51, could not present legitimate work permits or passports. They were immediately taken to the Chonburi Immigration Office for questioning.

 

While under questioning, the arrested workers admitted to illegally entering Thailand through natural passageways in the Tak province. They also confessed they traveled to Pattaya in search of jobs in the construction sector.

 

Charges have been leveled against the arrested laborers for residing in Thailand without legal authorization. All six are being held in detention awaiting deportation.

Can't have that. Same as in USA. Nothing but bickering and pointing fingers when all they would have to do to stop it is lay criminal charges against employers. Thing is many of them are political donors so can not have that. Both places are extremely corrupt

In the UK employing illegals can lead to a 10,000 pound fine for each one working there.

My step daughter got caught employing illegals at her restaurant. She was given a brown envelope to place 10,000 baht in, it put her out of business. Ironically the majority of law makers and senior BIB's all have illegals working as domestics. The reason is many Thais are plain lazy and refuse to follow orders. Whereas most illegals are hard workers and obey what's asked of them.

That's how a fine works here. Some large restaurants nearby my home all seem to employ Cambodians.

Immigration may well have helped the USA and Oz in their early days, but modern day immigration does not seem to be of any benefit to Europe, UK and maybe modern day USA. Many countries are struggling under the weight of it. Perhaps Thailand has more sense.
