Let them in!

Thailand is not necessarily prepared to shelter people fleeing a war zone. Every country is taxed just dealing with COVID and the economy. 

Those fleeing may be partisan fighters. If Thailand signals it is a haven for war resistance it will effectively be a military base against Myanmar.

This may not be the position Thailand wants to be in (a de facto declaration of war).

No doubt.

No doubt they are fine people.

Surely you are joking. They need to apply for land border entry which is currently closed. 

Or else fly in, Phuket sandbox, etc.
