After the violent domination of Brasilia’s Congress and other government offices by Bolsonaro supporters, it’s clear that Bolsonaro isn’t welcome in Florida!
U.S. Congressmen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Joaquin Castro, affiliated with Joe Biden's Democratic Party, called in Twitter posts for Jair Bolsonaro (PL) to leave the United States, citing attacks on democracy by supporters of Brazil's former president in Brasilia on Sunday 8th.
Bolsonaro left Brazil on December 30th, before the end of his term. Breaking a democratic tradition, he decided not to pass the sash to Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (Workers party) and settled in the Orlando region, near Disney parks.
According to Gustavo Ferraz de Campos Monaco, Professor of private international law at the USP Law School, two paths could result in the mandatory eviction of the Brazilian politician by deportation and extradition.
The extradition process depends on different variables. Monaco explains that he must first be requested by the Brazilian judiciary and then forwarded by the federal government to the USA who may or may not accept it.
Extradition can only happen if there is a specific agreement between the two countries involved, which is the case with Brazil and the U.S., and depends on factors such as mutual benefit of sentences, he explains.
Deportation, in turn, is a faster mechanism and depends solely on the will of the state in which the former president now finds himself. In this case, the decision does not need to be anchored in any premise or assumption, according to Monaco.
Following this hypothesis, if he used his diplomatic passport to enter the U.S., the former president would have 72 hours to leave the country. Now there are talks about him going to Italy where he has many followers.
