FUSCO, Wilson. A formação de comunidades-filhas no fluxo de brasileiros para os Estados Unidos. São Paulo Perspec. [online]. 2005, vol.19, n.3, pp.55-63. ISSN 0102-8839. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-88392005000300005.
The purpose of this work is to analyze the formation of Brazilian communities in certain areas of the U.S.A. as a result of the social organization process which facilitates the immigrant adjustment at his/her destination. Strongly influenced by migrant networks, the potential migrants fail to consider many available places as potential destinations in order to concentrate themselves at those few places, which are connected to their place of origin through relevant social ties.
