Two million EU citizens get settled status in UK
« เมื่อ: มิถุนายน 23, 2021, 05:15:33 PM »
Two million EU citizens living in the UK have been granted settled status - allowing them to remain here permanently after Brexit.

Another 4,600 applications were refused, 36,500 were withdrawn and 34,900 were made by people who are not eligible for the scheme.

In response to the figures, the Liberal Democrats called for EU citizens to be automatically given a right to stay.

They say there is a risk of "a new Windrush-style scandal."

The Windrush scandal meant some British citizens from Commonwealth countries were unable to prove their right to be in the UK, leaving them without work and access to benefits - and leading, in some cases, to people being wrongly deported.

The party says successful settlement scheme applicants should be given physical documented proof of their permanent leave to remain, to avoid them experiencing similar problems.

But the Home Office said an automatic system could lead to confusion and lead to EU citizens struggling to prove their status in years to come.

The figures also show that a further 1.5m people, who have been in the UK for less than five years, have been given pre-settled status. รีวิวเว็บสล็อต

They can apply for permanent residency when they pass the five year threshold. Both pre-settled status and settled status mean people can work, study, receive healthcare and access benefits and services as they do now.
