bigasail33,  Thank you!
Nooo, politics are here much of the time 'self patting' or cloud skating.
But being in politics pays fantastic for a country what not can keep Phuket beaches clean.
( Is the Rawai waterfront already repaired/renewed? )
But back to subject: Why we always read about arrests of illegal workers ?
A foreign illegal worker only can work when a thai employer employs the worker illegal.
As simple is that, right? Why not arrest the employer?
Actually it is the thai employer who 'steals' the jobs ment for thai only by employing illegal foreigners.
It is about law enforcement, not politics.

Good job, number one priority, no crazy drivers on the roads killing people, they're all in jail! Haha get a single Chinese tourists guide, he's probably responsible for loads of deaths!!

The Chinese guy is right. 
A tour leader in a bus is not working as a tourist guide.
Unfortunately he remains illegal in Thailand. Sorry guy. Bad luck.
Wonder which thai company employs a illegal Chinese.
That thai company should be fined at least 50,000 thb to 'remember' not to steal away jobs from thai, and not employ illegally illegal foreigners.
Any objections?
