Migrant workers in Thailand face deportation

Two million undocumented workers could be deported in new crackdown on illegal migrants.

    In Thailand, two million undocumented migrant workers are facing deportation after a registration deadline passed earlier this month.

    Many of them could not afford the increased application fees to be documented.

    Thailand's labour minister is seeking to delay deportations in a country that has a significant reliance on migrant workers.

    Al Jazeera Scott Heidler reports from the port town of Mahachai.
