    “During his speech about the refugee crisis, Temer declared that Brazil has hosted more than 95,000 refugees from 79 nationalities. Official numbers from the country’s Ministry of Justice, however, show that the real number is ten times smaller: 8,800 people entered Brazil under as refugees”....

    The fact that the Minister of Justtce had to later “justify the discrepancy, stating that the UN doesn’t recognize as refugees migrants who have escaped natural disasters – which exclude the thousands of Haitians who have come to Brazil recently”, is just a question of semantics, or did the 86,200 Haitians who crossed the border, do so because jobs were plentiful and life was good in Haiti, soon after after the 2010 earthquake ??
    The UN needs to stop being such a leftist, pedantic organization...

    peace, human rights, and economic reforms WILL BE possible - with time - which is not in favor of the well-wishers; till the laws and constitution are drastically changed.

    Temer's real message to the UN (and everybody else):

    This admission has been suppressed by the Brazilian media:

    Temer has no mandate. His administration will fail.

    @3 Hippy
    As VP, Temer had no economic agenda; the PMDB did, and in fact it wasn't all that bad - IF they put their money where their mouths were ....
    But regarless, Dilma ignored it, preferring to let the economy slide into the shit , as long as the the PT was getting richer.....but suddenly the tide turned, screwing all the Bolivarian dreams.....
    Hippy,, your ignorance is the only spectacular thing about you.
