1/ on @BBCr4today Theresa May confirmed that Freedom of Movement will end on March 30th next year in case of a no deal Brexit. No transition, no implementation period. Plunging 3.6m EU citizens, despite continuing to live legally in the UK, directly into the #HostileEnvironment
3/ last week the Prime Minister promised to protect the #citizensrights of EU citizens no matter what Brexit outcome. Within the #HostileEnvironment this is becoming meaningless though.
4/ without a transition period for Freedom of Movement there will suddenly be 3.6m legal EU citizens - with their #citizensrights protected - unable prove to landlords, banks, the NHS and employers that they have the right to reside and work in the UK
5/ the Settled Status application process will not open until March 2019. It will have to process 5-7k applications per day. Only after successfully applying for the new status EU citizens will have documentation that proves their #citizensrights.
6/ until EU citizens have successfully applied for Settled Status they will appear undocumented to employers, landlords, banks & the NHS. How will they be able to tell if an EU citizen arrived on March 29th or April 1st 2019?
7/ with draconic fines for providing services to undocumented immigrants under the #HostileEnvironment those who provide hose services, employment & housing will have no other choice but to discriminate against all EU citizens.
8/ Theresa May proposing to stop Freedom of Movement without transition in case of no deal during the Settled Status application period will lead to real personal hardship for millions of legal EU citizens and it is impossible to administrate. It must not happen. /end
P. S. Technically, ID and passports will remain valid identification even after March 30th until UK changes current legislation but Freedom of Movement as Theresa May said can only end on March 30th 2019 with that change in legislation being made.

1/ On @IainDale at @LBC Iain Duncan Smith again called for benefits to be restricted or cut for future EU citizens arriving and working in the UK. Giving the impression that EU citizens in general are a drain on the system. Apart from the MAC report disproving this...
2/... Iain Duncan Smith's £4bn (sounds big) benefit claim needs to be seen in relation. His number is correct, here his sources from his own report
3/... but what he misses is putting this number in relation to the overall benefits spend of the UK which stands at £153bn excluding pensions for the year 2017

1/ "Cabinet ministers have been warned that the introduction of a new migration system [for EU citizens] could cause a '#Windrush-style' crisis." writes @SamCoatesTimes in @thetimes
2/ "[...]cabinet sources have revealed private warnings that the plans to change the rules for EU citizens who come in future could cause chaos." @SamCoatesTimes continues
3/ "Whitehall is trying to work out how to distinguish EU citizens born outside Britain who already live and work here, and are treated the same as UK citizens, from those who arrive after Brexit, who will not be." @SamCoatesTimes can reveal

1/ Let's see how many of the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK are going to get 'caught up in it [the #HostileEnvironment]' @10DowningStreet?

3/ Employers are already uncertain about hiring EU citizens - this will only worsen during the transition period when many EU citizens will not yet hold Settled Status. And it will be absolute chaos under no-deal Brexit

We need your support
September is almost over and our team has been extremely busy this month fighting for the #citizensrights of the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK.
But we do need your continued support to keep us going. You can help us here

September 1st marked #800DaysInLimbo for the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK & 1.2m @BritishInEurope.
And we started the month by writing a letter to @MichelBarnier & @DominicRaab - telling them that #EnoughIsEnough - asking them to finally commit to #citizensrights by ring fencing the already agreed rights no matter what Brexit outcome

@WalthamstowAcad care to comment please. This is unacceptable and all of the claims on here have been disproven by the recent MAC report. This is pure indoctrination of young minds with false stereotypes of immigration and specifically the Polish.
@stellacreasy
There are about 8k Polish citizens living in Waltham Forest Council. Many of their children will attend @WalthamstowAcad. Have you considered the impact of this poorly drafted error riddled homework on these children & how they might be perceived among their peers in the cohort?
If you'd rather teach your pupils the facts about immigration than further spreading false divisive stereotypes we'd recommend reading our summary of the MAC report on EU immigration

1/ What does no-deal Brexit mean for EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope?

@ecas_europe in collaboration with @EuropeStreet have put together a comprehensive summary of which #citizensrights will be affected in case of both orderly & no deal Brexit
europestreet.news/deal-or-no-dea…
2/ UK Govt promised no-deal notes on #citizensrights but none materialised. We now know how to market fertiliser but not what will happen to EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope. Anthony Valcke from @ecas_europe & @Claudiacomms fill some of these information gaps
3/ the reciprocal #citizensrights of EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope are complex and go way beyond just the right to stay and work as it often portrayed by senior UK Govt officials. It is not as easy as simply 'not turfing out' citizens.
