    Tom Bake MP, Jo Swinson MP and Ed Davey MP campaigning for a final say on the Brexit deal

    Monday, my colleague Tom and I spoke in Parliament for the 3.6 million EU citizens who have been made to put their lives on hold for two years now.

    After months of campaigning by the Lib Dems, the government agreed to secure the rights of EU citizens in the draft EU Withdrawal Agreement. But it is only a draft.

    And last week, the immigration minister told the Home Affairs Select Committee that current UK based EU citizens would be subject to the same immigration checks as new arrivals - with no documentation to prove their status.

    It is inhumane and unacceptable that we are treating EU citizens in this way.

    The Conservative Government is holding millions of lives in limbo - while Ministers fight amongst themselves.

    The Liberal Democrats Demand Better.

    Join our campaign, and help us demand that the government guarantees EU citizens the right to stay in the EU.
