Brazil Passes New Immigration Law that Requires Interpretation by Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho

Brazil is one of the nations with progressive legal systems. The country is also packed with high-caliber legal professionals who have an in-depth understanding of the Brazilian laws. The experts, among them Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho, have continued to scale the reputation of their nation as a hub for laws that are responsive to the need of its citizens. The recent enactment of a new immigration law that is cognizant of human rights, puts migrants at the same level with Brazilian natives and provides a legal roadmap for creating future policies that address issues of immigrants, is a clear signal that Brazil is committed to making its legal system even better.

The passage of this law comes on the backdrop of the increasing xenophobia and stringent border controls aimed at controlling the number of immigrants to different nations across the globe. Brazilian lawmakers see the immigrant law as a solution that will sufficiently address immigrant matters from all angles. The new law will mark the end of Alien Statute, which tackled immigration issues from national security and social control perspective. This will usher in the new Migration Law (No. 13,445) which advocates equal access by migrants to housing, education, social programs and benefits.

The passage of this kind of law often elicits mixed feelings from various players. This requires the stepping in of experienced lawyers such as Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho to provide expert opinion that will help various stakeholders in the country to understand the contents of the new law.
