Are "Retirantes" a product of the past or the present? Please forgive my complete ignorance of them. The piece, however, is very lovely.

Hi Ann. the migrants are a social problem in Brazil, are people who seek the minimum to survive without any perspective of future. It's a problem that has lasted decades and it seems that while corruption in my country have no end, these social problems continue :(

I would like to research further on this topic. English translations are hard to find via google. I think I will take a trip to my library. Thank you for taking the time to educate me on this social problem of your country. I hope only that things will be better for all concerned.
