Home Office ‘clueless’ over Brexit impact on cross border workers - Gildernew
Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has accused the British Home Office of being ‘clueless’ on the impact Brexit will have on cross border workers.
The Fermanagh & South Tyrone MLA said:
"There is growing concern among EU nationals living in the north about Brexit and the British government's controversial settlement scheme.
“While the Home Office are doing briefings for EU citizens, it’s clear they are clueless about the impact Brexit will have on cross border workers.
“They have no answers for the many constituents who are worried about their future amid the British government’s Brexit chaos.
“The backstop must be maintained to protect the interests of Ireland, and the interests of those who have come to work and make their home here.”
