Brexit Plagues Britain’S Most Vulnerable Europeans

2021-02-21   |   by CusiGO

According to Oxford University’s immigration Observatory (MO), nearly one million immigrants have decided to leave the UK and return home in 2020. The absence of a job, the lack of social assistance due to their abnormal conditions, and the increased sense of loneliness due to imprisonment have led to this outflow. The new immigration law passed by the Boris Johnson Administration on January 1 will complicate the return of those who want to try in the future. But it is the final implementation of brexit in the middle of this year that it is likely to become a time bomb for thousands of people who believe that they have a stable and stable life in this country.

A source from Spain’s foreign office in the UK recently admitted to the country: “problems will arise in the middle of the year, and older people are starting to have problems, for example, they realize that they haven’t even renewed their passports many years later.”. The conservative government launched the so-called EU solution in March 2019. Through the online service, residents of any community in the UK territory can apply for the right of abode by presenting their passport and documents (lease contract, municipal tax or electricity and gas receipt) evidencing their residence at least six months in advance. Once the Ministry of the interior recognizes and accepts this request, the pre brexit rights to mobility, work or social and health care remain intact.

According to official sources, so far only more than 5 million people (at least 246000 Spaniards among them) have gained new status (an estimated 3.6 million community members at the time the brexit talks began in the UK). The window will remain open until June 30, 2021, subject to proof of residence before the end of the transition period on December 31, 2020. “The majority of EU citizens living in the UK are young and highly educated, Madeleine sumption, director of Mo, said: “they should easily understand and use a petition procedure that has been simplified as much as possible, but it may bring more difficulties to some groups who are either not aware of the process, Or belong to vulnerable groups who suffer social exclusion or abuse, “he added.

The UK census figures are vague, but Mo estimates that there are about 140000 people who came to the UK more than 1430 years ago. Their average age is around 68, and many of them tend to think they are excluded from the new plan, or even unaware of its existence. For children born in the UK, the law does not immediately grant them nationality, so parents must also register under the same scheme. Previous figures show that in this case, there are about 700000 minors.

Wiard Sterk of the Netherlands, one of the supporters of the anti brexit movement of three million EU citizens, warned that even if 70 or 80 per cent of the population had successfully completed the regularization process, the number of people who might lose protection was worrying. “We’ve had cases like the windrush scandal, where many people don’t have documents, even though they’ve lived in this country almost all their lives.” Windmill was the first ship to transport hundreds of African Caribbean people from the British colony to Britain in the late 1940s. Under Theresa May, the conservative party, many of them were unable to re-enter British territory at the end of their visit and were trapped in their country of origin.

Kevin foster, Secretary of state for immigration, explained to the country in a recent interview: “the government has made it clear that anyone who is eligible and has reasonable reasons to exceed the deadline will have a new opportunity to apply.”. But Boris Johnson’s administration has yet to define these justifications, and new, more restrictive immigration rules have come into force.

A number of humanitarian organizations reported on the situation of all vulnerable community citizens, who eventually increased the number of homeless people in the United Kingdom. It is estimated that the number may be as high as 2000, most of them from Poland and Romania. “Their expulsion will be the last resort, and until then we will ask them to leave the country voluntarily and receive public assistance. “If they refuse, we may be forced to expel them,” Interior Ministry spokesman politico said. The Johnson administration has launched a voluntary return scheme, which includes community citizens living in the United Kingdom, with assistance of up to 2300 euros, but it is not known how many people have accepted the offer.
