President [Bolsonaro] ask for it, and it will be fulfilled. With these adjustments made, those who don't need the program left, it's easier to get resources for the 13th too, "he explained.
Osmar Terra defends the continuity of fine combs in the program, but is discarded, at this time, the possibility of readjustment in the value of benefits. "For now, no, we have to see how income and expenditure will develop.

The Citizenship Ministry will also receive a share from the National Police Office for Drugs (Senad). According to Osmar Terra, his portfolio will coordinate the treatment and acceptance of chemical dependence, while the Ministry of Justice will stick with attribution related to control, control and the fight against drug trafficking.
