    Mercosurized Brazilian Big Business?

    I don't think so mr think. Doesn't exist for 2 reasons.

    From my Brazilian friends I hear Mercosul and they don't care much about it. Second, So far I read about Brazilian corporations, they work for them self, not for Mercosul or in Spanish Mercosur.

    xbox, I find it funny how you type here about Paraguayans (nothing negative), but you forget that there are plenty of Argentinians and Chileans illegal here in Europe and funny, even in Brazil. Do you want them back, the ones here in Europe? Not many in Holland, must be because of the language. The ones in Brazil don't bother me at all, since i don't live there. just know.

    When you bother to comment about illegal immigrants in South America... why don't you bother to know the rules and laws?

    Where do you have the Info that they are illegals?......From your good Brazilian friends?
    Well, here is some news (2002) for them and for you.....
    Below you can find Mercosur, Chile and Bolivia's treaty of free residence and movement for its citizens.

    And yes, it is in Spanish.
    We do speak Spanish down here............

    Where do you have the Info that they are illegals?

    Dutch newspaper who wrote about when there was a discussion about illegal immigrants in the US and when Lula da Silva came up with the scheme to legalize illegal immigrants in his nation.

    And Again..perhaps you think that Mercosul/Mercosur is some kinda land where people within that organization can travel freely and stay if they want. Wrong. They can enter each other's nation with a bit easier, but to stay still depends on the nations laws and if they want them to stay.Mercosul/Mercosur is nothing more than a so called free trade organization (doesn't always looks like that) but also allow it's citizens travel easier within that area..(other rules are applied when you want to stay)

    and again..for bubble heads who “think” that only Spanish is spoken down there in South America, they are wrong and need to travel more. In South America they also speak Portuguese, English, Dutch and French.

    We will have to ask Mercosur to disregard its own treaties signed by six presidents and follow instead the analysis of an undisclosed Dutch newspaper......

    And who said that “ Only Spanish is spoken down there in South America” ?

    I just tried to avoid you asking me for an English or Dutch translation as you have done before.
