UK Prime Minister Theresa May is all set to seek clean Brexit from EU. The UK Home Office has stated quite a couple of times that it is unable to guarantee the right of EU citizens until and unless Europe guarantees the rights of nearly 1.2 million Britons in Europe.
Nightmare for EU citizens
EU citizens fear their lives could get really difficult with
- -their bank account closed,
- rental contracts revoked and
- jobs terminated.
This is likely to happen if the present rights of EU citizens to stay in the UK do not get guaranteed after Brexit. This is a warning from one of the leading immigration lawyer.
Theresa May will confirm UK exit from EU single market with control over immigration and removal of Britain from jurisdiction of EU court of justice as being top priorities.
A partner with specialization in immigration at London law firm named Kingsley Napley, Andrew Tingley states the scenario will be nothing less than a nightmare for EU citizens in the UK. It will happen if the UK government takes a decision that those settled in the nation before the referendum don’t have any right to live when the UK exits the EU.
