The issue of immigration and global borders was one of the most debated and discussed in 2015. It is estimated that if added only the number of refugees, displaced or refugee seekers, the population obtained would have enough size to occupy the position of 24th most populous nation in the world. In recent months, There were many reports of shipwrecks, deaths, attempts at illegal immigration, programs for receiving refugees and immigrants launched by Governments of different countries. Only in Curitiba, There are more than 2.500 Haitians newcomers, in search of better living conditions. Not to mention the hundreds of other nationalities also represented on city streets.
