Mensagem: 

 


To explain an often wrenching decision to pull up stakes, homeward-bound Brazilians point to a rising fear of deportation and a slumping American economy

 

wrenching=with sadness and loss on parting

pull up stakes=leave and move to another place

homeward bound= in direction of home

slumping American economy= economic recession
