The Immigration Bureau website has announced the arrest of 27 Palestinians.

 

Some 22 were rounded up in Lat Prao Soi 144 after raids by immigration and crime suppression police. These comprised 6 men, nine women the rest being small children. 

 

Five more adults described as "mafia figures" were arrested in Soi Nana. 

 

The Palestinians are claiming refugee status but are now in detention in Suan Phlu.

The Palestinians are claiming refugee status but are now in detention in Suan Phlu.  

And that shamefully will include the children, locked up in a small cage 24 hours a day. Hell of a welcome to a country. The story doesn't mention any charges or crimes, which concerns me. Has the anti foreigner sentiment gone so far, that people fleeing persecution are now to be arbitrarily jailed, simply for trying to escape danger? Do International treaties on refugee right not exist here? If there is more to the story, it should be announced.

It also doest state a different and more likely scenario:

 

That they came with their families & children knowingly planning to circumvent local laws, overstayed & committed crimes, got busted, and are now claiming asylum as a way to get out of it.

Interesting google translate from the FB Page linked in the OP:

 

Captured Palestinian 27 escaped into the city. The five leading protest leaders in front of the embassy called on the unhcr . Crime Suppression Center for Information Technology With the Immigration Police They were scattered throughout the room in the 144 Ladprao area, where they found the clues of the Palestinians. The escape into the city to live in Thailand and set up a gang of mafia in Soi Nana.

 

A search of five rooms in the area found 22 Palestinians living together in a crowded, six male, nine female, and the rest were young. The UNHRC's refugee groups have been detained in front of the embassy. . Previously, immigration police investigated. Five Palestinian leaders were arrested. At Soi Nana after found the behavior of a gang of mafia. In that area.

 

From now on all Palestinians will be detained. Send to the detention room. Immigration Office Suan Phlu to expand

 Where is the UN and UNHCR in all of that? so living in BKK and rounded as mafia is better for them?... coming to countries like Thailand is not a solution....

That seems like pure speculation and I see nothing in the story to substantiate any of it.

From what little the story does say, the biggest issue seems to have been publicly protesting in front of an embassy. Not something people breaking laws are wont to do. While some of them may have been making themselves busy in Nana, it seems most have been arrested purely for being refugees, standing up for their international rights, and who would have almost certainly entered legally. If you are illegal, publicly protesting would not be wise. 

And from now on, ALL Palestinians will apparently be detained. No one else see anything wrong with that? Innocent and guilty treated alike?

A couple of off topic and racist comments have been removed.

The thread is about Palestinians being arrested here.

It has nothing to do with other events around the world, both current day, or historical.

Suggestions that EVERY Palestinian is a terrorist will not be tolerated.

I think a week or two in the detention centre will make them think twice about claiming to be refugees.if your going to be a bad boy making money by being mafia in Thailand at least pay under the table and have a visa.
