At a Hmong camp - May 17, 2009
HK writes: In the mid-year 2004, Thamkrabok was a place in which Hmong resided, has now been closed by the soldiers. So, it caused some group of Hmong to remain there and 7,800 Lao Hmong refugees escaping from Laos have been living at Ban Huay Nam Kwaw, Kaek Noi sub-district, Phetchabun province. It is Thai government's duties and responsibilities to address. A group of Hmong deceived other Hmong people in Laos to immigrate to Thailand by claiming that the United States would support them as they were Hmong's lineage. Some of Hmong people claimed that they ran away from Laos because of genocide. In fact, there are no any policies to get Hmong back to the United States, but Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States, used to launch his campaign to support these Hmong people. Formerly, Laos had a distrust of these Hmong people because they were not sure whether these Hmong people were a group of Lao people against Laos or not and thought that Thailand gave them a hand. After discussing, Laos was pleased to get these Hmong people back home. At the present, a Police Lieutenant Colonel in Khao Kor district sent back 2,600 Hmong people to Laos in 14 groups. In 2009, many Hmong people will have been sent back to Laos. Thailand is well-known as a humanitarian country. We are now taking care of more than 100,000 refugees fleeing from the border fight and 2 million illegal labors immigrating from Laos, Burma and Cambodia. Although there are a lot of poor Thai people waiting for help, it is necessary to give them a hand because they are deeply distressed.
