Thais seeking political asylum in the U.S. will be detained

Thais seeking political asylum in the U.S. will be detained - New York Times, April 1, 2003
Thailand is on a list of 32 countries (most either with Muslim majorities or large Muslim populations) whose nationals will be detained if seeking political asylum "while their applications are considered, a process that takes six months or more." The list of countries is not publicly disclosed, but was pieced together by lawyers opposing the rule. We wonder how many Thais go to the US for political asylum.
