Migrants Still Deported En Masse from Thailand
Khmer Times / By Taing Vida

PHNOM PENH: -- Almost 70,000 Cambodian migrant workers were deported from Thailand through the Poipet international checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province last year, with the daily average being about 200, Poipet checkpoint Immigration police chief Sim Sam Ath said yesterday, citing an annual report.

Of the 67,087 migrant workers deported, 21,797 were women, Mr. Sam Ath said.

He also said that Cambodians who crossed the border for illegal logging often did so through illegal corridors. Those caught were often shot by Thai border police, Mr. Sam Ath added.

According to a report released last week on the government’s progress against human trafficking, 51,318 Cambodia migrant workers, including 4,030 children, were from Thailand during the first 10 months of last year, and 834 of them had been imprisoned in Thailand for more than a month.

Distortion , are you only shot if your illegally logging ? and the rest are just deported ?

The census ( if done ) would have widely fluctuations.

This is one thing Thailand gets right at least, illegal- kick 'em out back to where they came from with no human rights or court appeals nonsense with translators and lawyers paid for by the tax payer.

Isn't being a part of ASEAN about the free movement of labor?

Illegal logging for rosewood is driven by an insatiable demand for carved rosewood furniture by the Chinese. Products can sell for many millions of baht.

The import of rosewood is banned in Europe and many other countries. It is listed under CITES and some species are highly endangered.

The Thai Rangers trying to protect the few trees left have lost many of their colleagues ( killed by the loggers)

So yes they are shot.

The Chinese take no notice of international efforts to save endangered species- they would probably have a huge party when they munch up the last Rhino horn in the world.

Bit off piste to the OP , but these people need to deported or jailed.

Including refugees who obviously enter the country illegally?

Send them back to North Korea where certain death awaits them?

Some humanitarian you are!

Thailand needs these migrants to do all the shitty jobs that the Thais refuse to do these days. But deporting them does not kill them whereas refugees are treated disgracefully by the Thai authorities, many ending up dead upon repatriation.

Being part of ASEAN is NOT about freedom of movement as you would know had you read the ASEAN agreements.

Passports, visas and work permits are required by all ASEAN members for visitors and alien workers
