Mac needs to get Stateside again for the lysergic comedy gold of the Trump presidency.

Well, the way things are going, they may just ship me State side via deportation. This new government is incredibly scary and we are going to have to live through a year and a half of it, at least. During that time,mthe constitution looks like it will be ripped to shreds. There are so many different ways they could fuck me, it's not even slightly funny.

Just for starters, I am trying to reactivate my naturalization process. Why? Because Brazil's Foreigner's Code is from thentime of the dictatorship and probibits foreigners from political activities. The Constituion supposedly supercedes that, but nothing prevents them from running me in and taking up my time and money making me defend myself. And, of course, with the wrong judge, I could nd up fucked anyhow.

This is happening to an Italian professor right now.

Advice to Mac. Leave. I would.


OK. So I have been living here for thirty years. Almost all of my friends and profesional contacts are here. Plus, I am in an incredibly competitive field where there are very few jobs, anywhere. I have a house full of goods that just can't up and move. I have a wife, who doesn't speak English. A mother-in-law and niece who are dependent on us (the mother in law hasn't received her retirement pay in two months due to the crisis).

Any suggestions how I get all those people over to whatever wondefull cointry likes poor Brazilian immigrants and welcomes them with open arms?

I mean, I could abandon them, I guess, and go deliver pizzas in the U.S. or something...

This is not meant to come across as snarky in any way, I'm genuinely curious. If you have been there 30 years why didn't you get Brazilian citizenship sooner? Do the Brazilians not recognize dual nationality?

I attempted to get it in 2004. The long story is, I encountered police corruption and the process dragged out until 2008. I received citizenship in 2008, but couldn't take it up because of bureaucratic and personal problems. Now I need to find out if I can reactivate that process or start all over again.

It is easy to obtain you daft sod. Married or in a stable domestic partnership with a Brazilian citizen or have Brazilian dependants? The processo for citizenship now only takes 12 months in those circumstances, pretty much the same time frame as residency. Fear not, you aren't going to have to do the national service obligation.

You might want to read the article I wrote about how fucked up the process is. It's here and it's painless, JJ:

The long and the short of it is that it is easy to obtain, provided the cops you are dealing with aren't corrupt. Here in Rio, that's not a good assumption to make.
