However, EU citizens entering the UK after a certain ‘cut-off’ date, which has not yet been set, will have new immigrant laws applied to them. These laws have not been decided yet.
Although, in her recent speech, Theresa May stated that EU citizens will not be asked to leave Britain, there are still many issues which have not been discussed. Voting rights, professional qualifications, healthcare and rights for self-employed workers have not been guaranteed.
All of this uncertainty has caused many EU citizens, both those who live in the UK and those who wish to migrate here, to worry about the stability of their future.
What I think
There have been many disputes over Brexit over the past months and, with the results of the referendum being so close, many argued that there should be a second referendum.
As a EU citizen myself, Brexit and the new laws concerning us have caused me to worry about my future and opportunities in the UK.
Nowadays, young people face huge stress and pressures from society. Our already growing uncertainty about our future careers and lives will only be emphasised, and some of us may feel at a disadvantage due to our nationality.
The idea that EU citizens may be given specific ID cards may cause segregation among ethnic groups and result in people feeling isolated and unwelcome in the UK.
In a time where standing together and presenting a united front is so vital, do we really need more laws forcing division among the people of Britain?
