and you still can cross the land-border on so many places......

Or the green border; e.g. from/to Laos could easily cross over when the river bed is dry. Real criminals wouldn't queue up at airport immigration. Only small, unintelligent, crooks do...

A vinyl board at immigration proclaimed that the 2 billion baht biometrics system was wonderful. 

The plastic bag ban comes in next month, are vinyl posters included? Maybe vinyl-shaming will be one of the stories of 2020, after they fish a Big Odious poster out of the drain...

This is great. I'm pleased that Thailand is pleased with it's whopping expenditure on security.

 

This is not news.

 

What's worse is it's technology doing its job. The cops have nothing to do with it.

 

I'm convinced a family member has a business making vinyl posters.

What was the latest number of expected tourists / arrivals? 3+ million per month?

 

So you got 9...

 

Does somebody arrange the media presentation /  release, print everything up, gather everybody then say okay show me what you got?

How many people have been stopped, interrogated, harassed, and then proven innocent?

The purpose of screening is to deter crime and if my life is interupted or inconvenienced at the airports around the world and Thailand, then I deal with it and move on. The position you take is without merit unless you can propose an alternative method and the authority to impliment it.

That´s great! More trash stopped at the border or found and deported. 

I wait with glee when you are deemed as 'trash' and are kicked out - don't tell me, you are model citizen 😄

Your little try at posting a feasty comment failed at the end. First talking about waiting for me beeing kicked out, and then citing that I might be a citizen????

Since when have people started to wait for the country´s immigration to start kick out their own citizens? 

However, you can still wait with your glee and other friends if you have any. I am not a citizen.

If true that they were able to board flights in first world countries without their spurious passports being detected, this would be extremely disturbing and scary. Imagine someone with ulterior motives boarding the same flight you're flying on and easily clearing immigration with someone else's passport. I can't understand how some of these people can easily slip through the system in places like Europe where they have this sophisticated second generation Schengen Information System (SIS) and Interpol databases all interlinked to each other. How is it that they are all caught in BKK?

Imagine if they would link the system to Interpol database and Thai Police warrants.  They would catch a lot more interesting people with money that can enter at the moment and hide in Thailand.

People "with money" are not always criminals. Thailand just needs to interface better with other countries to keep out undesirables.

I don't think for example people who are convicted in their own country of violence, drunk driving, thefts, etc. should be allowed into Thailand, even if their documents are valid.

They are just ordinary human beings like you and me. Not trash at all. No need for you to get excited in such a vitriolic way. Its a bit wierd actually. To have such hate filled feelings is disturbing enough but to voice then publicly is very odd and hints at an underlying problem.

Sorry to say Sunnyboy2018 that you're banging your head against a brick wall, but I do agree the vitriol is a bit OTT. I think his time is wasted on this forum and someone should give him a uniform and a gun, so he can protect Thailand's borders from this plague of human trash and garbage that's intent on invading and then destroying the pristine reputation of the Kingdom.

Sure, I know people with money are not necessarily criminal; I have some friends that make good money legally.  You are correct, I should have been more specific . Criminals with a lot of money and connections can <sometimes> fool the system by getting false documents and providing large sum of money to local people that can let them in and stay hidden without having much problems.
