These were mostly migrant workers on overstay or who had entered illegally.

Various work places, hotels and flats were raided in the sweep. 

Immigration chief Lt-Gen Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn was notable by his absence on this occasion with deputy Maj-Gen Itthiphon presiding over affairs at the Chana Songkhram police station near Khao San road last night.
