BANGKOK — The head of the U.N. International Labor Organization, Guy Ryder,
is expected to urge Thailand to extend a Friday deadline for migrant workers
to become documented or face deportation. Bangkok is threatening to deport
more than a million migrant workers, most from Burma, who do not finish
a process called nationality verification, which activists say is flawed.
The United Nations agency opposes mass deportation.
