TNews reported that six illegal immigrants were paraded at Pattaya police station yesterday evening.
In a video the Pattaya chief Apichai Krobpetch said that they were all illegal immigrants who were taking Thai jobs.
He mentioned Pattaya and Bangkok as where they had been working.
Whether this was part of the nationwide crackdown on "dark skinned people" as reported by Thai Rath was not mentioned.
No attempt was made to obscure the faces of those who face deportation.
TNews said with incredulity that one of the men had overstayed 3 years.
The crackdown seemed to be a joint operation between the Pattaya force and tourist police headed by Piyapong Ensarn who was also at the press conference.
