Police found Khmer men working in the fishing boats and in many other jobs. Most of them had brought their wives along and rented rooms around Bangsaray, Sattahip, Chonburi. They had settled down in Thailand and started to increase the population. Many of them are beggars in Pattaya and near by to cause problem and annoy the tourists.
Lately, Pattaya immigration police raided to a fisherman camp, Moo 1, Bangsaray, Sattahip, where the illegal Khmers had rented rooms to stay with their wives and children. Khmer families with their infants, altogether thirty people were arrested. Police found that they have entered to Thailand illegally with their wives and started expanding their families. Some Khmer men were alert and escaped, leaving their wives and children there. Police had taken them to Sattahip police station in order to proceed of sending them back to Cambodia.

Police Captain Archeep declared that there were many young children coming out to beg for money from tourists and they were mostly Khmers. Some of them had arrived with their parents and some of them were born in Thailand. However, there is human trafficking around. The young children could be stolen and then forced to beg in the street. Whether those are their real children or not must be investigated. Police will get rid of illegal workers in every area as soon as possible.
