I don't even know... They say the economy is still bad in northeastern Brazil where life would be rough, so a lot of people from there would try to move to French Guiana where welfare is kind of better, although nothing much comfy, huh. There's some crime, racism and social issues in French Guiana as well, but less violently than in Brazil.

In metropolitan France and Paris in particular, you don't meet many of them. Or they must easily blend with locals anyway. For example, I know a couple of guys from Chile and Peru. They had no problem to settle down here at all. They're just pretty much like locals so you don't take notice. Also generally speaking, the South Americans would obviously rather go to the US when they need to get better off, there are not so many of them in Europe, except for Spain for an obvious linguistic convenience.
