WashingtonThere has been a call to send former President Jair Bolsonaro, who came to America, back to his country amid ongoing violent protests in Brazil. Democratic lawmakers on Thursday called on President Joe Biden to revoke Bolsonaro’s visa, saying the United States should not grant asylum to anyone involved in riots against Brazil’s newly elected government, according to an AFP news agency. . . Bolsonaro, a close confidant of former US President Donald Trump, flew to Florida instead of attending President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s inauguration on January 1 and raised serious questions about fairness October elections. A few days after arriving in America, violent protests began to take place in the country.

Rioters backing Bolsonaro surrounded the capital Brasilia on Sunday, vandalizing the presidential palace and other institutions, alongside the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol. Joaquin Castro and Gregory Meeks, the top Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the United States should not allow Bolsonaro or any other former Brazilian official to seek asylum in the United States to avoid to be punished for crimes.

At the same time, he asked the Biden administration to assess “Is Bolsonaro’s visit to the United States legal?” Because he may have come to America for an official visit, even though he is no longer president. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said of Bolsonaro’s attendance at a Wednesday press conference that the United States has not received any request from Brazil, but if it does, it will respond promptly on the subject.
