As furadoras e a pretendida: emigração brasileira não documentada para os Estados Unidos da América

Emerson César De Campos


The article deals with transnational migrations at the Present Time. The author has employed analytically the category of “border” in his field research undertaken, from 2000 to 2004, in Brazil, USA and Mexico. As a result, a historical narrative with dramatic overtones unfolds against the background of Mexican-US border crossing. However, the undocumented immigration of Brazilians through the Mexican border into the USA has declined sharply due latter country economic crisis in 2008. Yet in this article, we seek to study thoroughly the period prior to the US economic downturn aiming to understand the current trends of Brazilian migration in the US through the Mexican border. Lastly, the results for the period selected were achieved through interviews, writing sources and a carefully selected bibliography.
