UK: The Hostile Environment Will Affect All EU/EEA Citizens Not Covered by The EU Settlement Scheme from 30th of June

5 March 2021 — Migrants Organise


EU citizens with complex mental health needs risk being removed and indefinitely detained from 30th June. Migrants Organise is taking the Home Office to court to prevent this injustice.

In this blog, our Legal Organiser, Brian Dikoff, argues that unless action is taken now, tens of thousands more vulnerable people are at risk of being left without any immigration status and plunged into the Hostile Environment.

Spread the word, donate to our Crowdjustice appeal or contact us for more information on how to get involved. Help us hold the Home Office to account, ensuring that the UK does not discriminate against EEA citizens on the basis of mental health disability or capacity.
