Before the referendum, Boris Johnson made a promise to every EU citizen living in the UK. He said they would automatically be granted the right to stay indefinitely.
Surprise, surprise, he’s gone back on his word and betrayed EU citizens. Now they have to wade through red tape to find out if they’ve been granted settled status in the UK. And if they don’t get approved by June 2021, they'll be subjected to the Conservatives’ hostile environment.
But the Liberal Democrats won’t stop fighting for EU citizens. We know they are our colleagues, our friends and our neighbours. We owe them so much and they have a right to stay here.
That’s why today I presented a Bill in Parliament to hold the Tories’ feet to the fire. The Bill does two things: automatically grant EU citizens living in the UK the right to stay, and provide EU citizens with confirmation of their status on paper, preventing them from becoming the victims of another Windrush scandal.
We're not going to let Boris Johnson get away with this. We’re going to pile on the pressure. And we’re not going to stop until he keeps his promise and automatically extends the right to stay to all EU citizens.
But I can’t do this without you. Can we count on your support?
Back the campaign ➜ <[link removed]>John, your support during our fight against Brexit was incredible and I'm so, so grateful. But what a post-Brexit Britain looks like is still up for grabs. The fight for Britain's future is far from over. We aren't giving up fighting for EU citizens to have the right to stay in the UK. Are you with us?
