Mensagem:  That's very philosophical of you, by claiming that the term "illegal" is inappropiate. I actually agree with you. But there's something you need to know; the American government is very imperialistic and racist. As you pointed, Argentinians and Urugayans benefit from the visa waiver program, they can enter the United States without a visa. Why! Are their economies significantly better than Brazil's? I don't think so. Although, Argentina is no longer part of the visa waver program(Its economy crashed), I still don't think it should've been given that privilege in the first place, as its economy as always been kinda equal to that of Brazil, as far as I know. Now, here comes another deciding factor, /whiteness/, Argentina is associated with whiteness, whereas Brazil is associated with "mestizagem". As America is a white supremacist country, it would not take a rocket scientist to figure out why they once included Argentina and Uruguai in the Visa-Waver program, and refused to include Brazil. The motivations are rather obvious to me... I know you may find this message to be a little controversial, but I implore you to read it critically and tell me what you think. cheers, -Miguel Vieira
