【看英文中國郵報學英文】昨(14)日晚間大約七點半,台中市東協廣場前發生移工被警察驅趕事件。

On July 14th, drunk foreign immigrant workers caused a ruckus in the Taichung ASEAN square, forcing the police to take action and coercing them to leave.

據「TIWA Taichung 台灣國際勞工協會台中辦公室」在臉書粉絲頁貼文指出,「約莫七點半的時候,警察開始整隊人馬驅趕坐在廣場上的移工們,把群聚的所有人都趕走。」

Around 7:30 pm on July 14th, police had to force several drunk immigrant workers to leave because they were disturbing the neighborhood. According to TIWA Taichung’s  (Taiwan’s Immigrant Worker Association, Taichung Office) Facebook page, a member posted on their group that: “It was around 7:30 p.m. when the police started to drive away all the workers sitting in the ASEAN square.”

底下回文則有臺中市政府警察局第一分局副分局長周俊銘出來澄清表示,「本分局於上週日勤務結束後,又接獲民眾報案有人酒後喧嘩,乃再派員到場對現場已有酒(醉)意卻仍逗留之移工,採取勸離作爲」。

The deputy director of the Taichung City Government Police Department, Chou Junming left a comment down under the Facebook post clearing up the situation: “After our branch finished our daily duties last Sunday, we received a call from a citizen reporting that there were drunk people causing a scene. We sent out officers to examine what was happening in the square, only to find drunk immigrant workers still loitering around, and that’s why we tried to persuade them to leave.”
