I think the word illegal is inappropriate. Immigration regulations are way below in hierarchy to natural rights. Take a look at the articles 1 and 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
If Argentinians and Uruguayans can travel without applying for a visa beforehand, what the US immigration authorities are doing to Brazilians is discrimination, to say the least.
