“We ask the Federal Government to include the guarantee of emergency protection and logistical support for the family reunification of these immigrants in Brazil. As well as, ensure the immediate entry of Haitian citizens into the national territory, especially those who wish to rebuild their lives in our country”, states a letter signed by more than 25 civil society bodies, who are active specialists in Migration Law and welcoming people like migrants and refugees.
