And how many business owners that they were the workforce for have been arrested?

Cant be sooooooo difficult to ask the illegals or agents who they were going to work for

If there were no promise of jobs they wouldn't come

I agree, the U.S.should do the same for illegals, no jobs and no social benefits and most of the illegal immigration would be stopped.

Easy dealt with in both Thailand AND USA, Arrest the bosses who are employing them, throw the book at them for firstly employing illegal cheap labour, and then hit them with the conditions and state of work, tax and insurance avoidence etc etc
Should be enough to make sure that plenty of Mr Bigs are behind bars for a hell of a long time
Mind you that would take backbone and someone not dreaming of a nice shiney new sports car in the Car Park

One wonders how many of the 15,393 'illegal immigrants' from Myanmar could be termed 'refugees'. But, of course, there are no refugees from Myanmar, at least according to our 'Supreme Leader' - a term that I use rather loosely.

Why is the military detaining illegal aliens? Don't they have a border patrol for that?

You mean like the U.S. Border Patrol? I heard that fine body of men and women were the inspiration for the Korean Robocar Poli.
