Crackdown on Irregular Migrant Workers in Thailand

There have been reports of a large-scale crackdown on irregular migrants in Thailand this June. Cambodian migrant workers have been particularly impacted, though their Burmese counterparts have also reportedly been arrested, detained and deported. This has led to a mass exodus of migrants from Thailand, with more than 140,000 undocumented Cambodian workers having fled Thailand in early June, according to the IOM.
