thank you for the compliment, which at the same time was an insult, but w/e (insinuating that illegal aliens are dumb... but calling me intelligent)

Btw, how dare you violate the immigration laws by coming here when you were 8 years old...? Surely you had control over your actions and should have left immediately after your tourist visa expired.

So what are you going to do next? I see that you have articulated your problems and hardships, but I don't see any solutions. Are you simply making a statement? Anyway, most, if not all, of your challenges are self-imposed. Interesting story, but what do you want us to do?

Another1 your story has touched me:

I will tell you something irmao, I was an illegal immigrant in Brazil for 2 years, I never had a problem people never minded about my "illegal" status, I even explained some federal polices why I was here, and I guess that you being from Brazil know that you can speak out of things honestly and openly and people won't judge you.

This world is wrong man, people are so confused and enslaved by patriotism and prisioners of nationalism that they don't recognize the fellow human being, they just see labels.

I believe that thanks to people like you and me, this world will be a better place someday, don't worry too much about what others think, God gave you a consciousness for you to use it.

vá sempre com o amor e a luz irmao, fica com deus

What strikes me about the original post is how bad they had it, and then he left, but then he returned. I am confused . Eating garbage is pretty low and if its true my heart bleeds for him. But to go from eating garbage to being able to afford to travel to brazil and back again seems like life wasn't too bad.
Carrying cinderblocks for 12 hours to get 100 tax free dollars. What would that be if taxes were net after taxes? 140 bucks maybe? 12 bucks an hour for unskilled laborer.
Now lets assume that due to him taking that job that a legal citizen could not. Mostly because a legal has to pay taxes and so he would get the 12 an hour. Lets assume that now a legal is either unemployed or had to change trades.
This individual has a computer and time to post. He can afford the internet, and rent. Life must not be so bad.
Equal rights in this country really apply to legal residents even though we grant a good many benefits to illegals that neither pay for them nor earn them. All on the taxpayers back.
I don't look for gratitude but one might expect silence from one who takes and takes but returns nothing to the country that he now lives in.

and its not a matter of just "up and at em boys, lets go back to brazil!"
life is MUCH worse there, ya it can be a rising economy, but rising from how low?
its only good to live there if you have a higher education degree, then youll be getting paid 5-20x more then a cashier, or someone that works on a clothes store etc.
which, at least for those that never leave the country, is quite impossible to aquire unless you are already born in a priviledged situation, such as a very rich family with high friendships etc.
Yes, beating the system. You sound like a typical illegal. Get out of my country. We don't want you, or your family.

Illegals are "forced to take the scraps"?? What - you call free medical care, free schooling, free welfare, free WIC, free food stamps, etc. "scraps"?

We give illegals everything, and then they spit on us in return, like the Mexicans screaming and yelling in the streets for their so-called "rights", waving another country's flag, and expecting US to pander to them.

The American people do not want illegal immigration, and we're tired of paying for people who shouldn't even be here - it's our government that won't stand up and do what's right. But, things are changing, state by state, city by city, and town by town.

If you think Brazil is better about "treating people equally", why not go back?
