Rep Tim Ryan is right in his pursue of justice, but his proposals will not affect the Brazilian government. For instance, a recent bill, aimed to deny visas to Brazilians, will not affect the government at all. On the contract, it will solely disrupt families that have nothing to do with Mr Hoeg´s tragedy – and worse, no sympathy to how both governments are handling the case. If approved, the bill will simply force the Brazilian government to deny visas for Americans, according to the principle of reciprocity. In my case, my wife is American. We live in Brazil, and she is getting her resident visa. Should she be denied the right of living in Brazil because she is American? Like me, she has no connection with the Brazilian government; like me, she is disappointed with how this case is being handled. A bill whose subject is a private party is not likely to affect the any government. It only proves we should stop Big Govs. Mr Ryan, help Mr Hoeg´s family, but do not foster Big Govs.
