ASSIS, Gláucia de Oliveira  e  IHA, Natália Cristina. The learning of the young Brazilian migrants: problems and perspectives. Imaginario [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.14, pp. 357-378. ISSN 1413-666X.

This study on the second generation of Brazilian migrants in the U.S.A. emphasizes the insertion of the young and adolescents into the school environment while they also search for a place in the labor market. The school is for many of them the door of entrance to the new world, where the main conflicts and shocks of identity occur, Inter and intra-related with the linguistic, sociocultural and political issues, within a process of exclusion and racism at the same time in which it aggregates communities and segregates them from the access to the main way of the North-American society. The methodology used in this research sought to follow the migrants’ trajectories and the relations that they establish between Brazil and the U.S.A. Besides, the data collected in the Consulate of Boston was also used, as well as the analyses of relevant secondary data found in revised bibliographies. Authors like Bourdieux (2001), Sayad (1998), Penna and Mey (1998), Elias (1996) and Assis (2003), e experts like Portes (2001), Alba (2003) and Suarèz-Orozco (2002) were extremely important to validate this article. The result of this analysis points to the hope of the young Brazilian migrants to insert themselves into the North American society to “gain America”, while they demonstrate their lack of perspective for being illegal in the country.
