Call for Barnet MPs to guarantee #righttostay for EU citizens post-Brexit

righttistay_boardDear Dr Matthew Offord MP, Mr Mike Freer MP and Ms Theresa Villiers MP,

We the undersigned call on you, as our parliamentary representatives across Barnet, to publically support the right of EU citizens that live in the United Kingdom to remain here once the UK leaves the European Union, keeping their rights and obligations identical to those prior to the UK leaving the EU.

These citizens took up these rights and obligations in good faith when they arrived in the UK with many of these citizens making a life and family in our country for decades. These people work in vital industries and public services, run businesses and contribute greatly to the tax revenue of this country. Additionally they have raised families here and contribute to the wider cultural make-up of our community, especially here in Barnet.

We therefore ask you to publically support the Lords Amendment to Clause One stating that EU citizen's rights must be protected after Article 50 is called. By supporting the Amended Bill you will be signalling to your constituents your empathy and compassion towards a large number of people in Barnet.
