Brazil and Spain Call for a Cease-Fire on Their Deportation War

    Madrid's international airport, Barajas

    Madrid's international airport, Barajas Following a tit-for-tat stand off between Brazilian and Spanish authorities regarding their nations tourists that saw airport agents sending back visitors Brazil and Spain have agreed to a "truce" on migration controls.

    Brazilian Foreign minister Celso Amorim said that a truce had been reached with his Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos and in the coming days less rigid controls will be applied to Brazilians arriving in Spain.

    "Spaniard officials called me to find a solution. I interpret the call as a truce, an effort to diminish the number of Brazilians that are not admitted into Spain", said Amorim according to an interview published in the Brazilian daily O Globo.

    Amorim described the phone call by  Moratinos as a "contention attitude" to avoid the situation evolving into a diplomatic incident. Almost 750 Brazilians have been deported so far from Spain and 3.000 in 2007, which motivated a formal complaint from the Brazilian government to the Spanish ambassador in Brasí­lia, Ricardo Peidró.

    Brazilian president Lula da Silva, as happened previously with the United States migratory policy, ordered the principle of "reciprocity" to be instrumented and 27 Spaniards have been deported from Brazil in the last few days.

    In the coming days a "tacit agreement" will be implemented "to avoid excesses, to avoid ill treatments and violation of human rights", said Amorim.

    Last week 30 Brazilians, including scientists who had been invited to an academia congress were retained for over 24 hours in Madrid's Barajas airport before been deported.

      Spain has every right to deny entry to these macaquitos. They will only brown up the country. Let Spain be European. Brazilians stay in your own country.”

      The south of Spain looked pretty dark to me. The whites did not look very white either. Same thing in Portugal.

      A proud macaquito.

      I just can’t see why people think that europeans are better than the latin american. They’re just a bunch of feeble minded that know nothing about other countries and have no idea how amazing Brazil is. I’ve been there several times and I can say that the europeans are too influenced by the media, they are just ignorants that don’t know what they are saying.”

      Katrine, I think you are describing Americans and Brazilians, not Europeans.

      [b]Dois bolivianos, um italiano e dois brasileiros foram detidos.
      Eles estavam com malas de fundo falso com 12 kg de cocaÀƒ­na.[/b]

      ApÀƒ³s quatro meses de investigaÀƒ§Àƒ£o, dois bolivianos, um italiano e dois brasileiros foram presos pela PolÀƒ­cia Federal (PF) em BrasÀƒ­lia e no ParanÀƒ¡, no sÀƒ¡bado (15). Eles carregavam cinco malas com o fundo falso, cada uma com cerca de trÀƒªs pacotes de cocaÀƒ­na. No total, o grupo estava com 12 kg da droga, segundo a PF.

      A PF informou que o italiano foi detido no aeroporto de BrasÀƒ­lia; os dois bolivianos e um brasileiro, na regiÀƒ£o central da cidade, no Setor Hoteleiro Sul, e um outro brasileiro foi detido no ParanÀƒ¡.

      O grupo se preparava para embarcar para a SuÀƒ­Àƒ§a no momento da prisÀƒ£o, segundo informou a superintendente da PF no Distrito Federal, Valquiria Teixeira de Andrade.

      “Ontem, o brasileiro foi para Curitiba. Mais tarde, o italiano saiu do hotel e foi para aeroporto, iria para Zurique [SuÀƒ­Àƒ§a]. Um dos bolivianos ficou no hotel e os os utros dois entraram em um taxi, com malas para ir ao aeroporto. Decidimos entÀƒ£o abordÀƒ¡-los nesse momento”, explicou a superintendente.

      [/b]
      A PolÀƒ­cia Federal comeÀƒ§ou a monitorar os suspeitos a partir da prisÀƒ£o de uma brasileira na FranÀƒ§a, no ano passado. Ela portava uma mala com cocaÀƒ­na e ia de trem para Zurique. A brasileira informou ÀƒÂ  polÀƒ­cia francesa que havia sido arregimentada por um brasileiro, um dos que foi preso em BrasÀƒ­lia neste sÀƒ¡bado.

      A partir da informaÀƒ§Àƒ£o, a PolÀƒ­cia Federal passou a monitorar o brasileiro e as pessoas com quem se encontrava. No Àƒºltimo dia 14, o principal investigado chegou a BrasÀƒ­lia se hospedou em um hotel da capital, com os dois bolivianos. Ao acompanhar os suspeitos, os investigadores perceberam a relaÀƒ§Àƒ£o do italiano com o grupo.

      Can anyone blame other countries for being rigid in respect to anyone entering their country coming from Brazil? 🙁

      The english have been heavily investing in the country for the last 25 years. Property prices there today are so far out of whack that Spain is having some very difficult times at the moment in that industry.

      I tend to agree with you. Both ruled by Franco and Salazar respectively (Just like Castro in Cuba and Stroessner in Paraguay). But tell me one thing, where the hell did Spain get so much money from, to buy out the Corporations in Lat AM? It does intrigues me.

      Well the U.S. certainly didn’t cave in, the process implented after 9/11 is still in effect today…and for anyone and everyone. Yet I don’t see Brazil photographing and fingerprinting Americans anymore.

      Wonder why?
