1/ After the #WindrushScandal media, politicians & organisations are worried that the 3.6m EU citizens in the UK might fall into the #HostileEnvironment after Brexit. The truth is that we are already deep in it.
2/ part of the #HostileEnvironment is the right-to-rent scheme. Threatening Landlords with £3k fine should they rent to someone undocumented. @RLA_PEARL research shows that as a result 1 in 6 landlords already reluctant to let to EU citizens.
3/ Employers are also already discriminating against EU citizens in fear of the £20k fine they face as part of #HostileEnvironment. Triggering @PaulBlomfieldMP to write to @DavidDavisMP last August
4/ and then there is Operation Nexus, a scheme where police pass on information about every foreigner, including EU citizens, they have come in contact with to immigration enforcement. Witnesses & victims of crimes included.
5/ to say that the negative impact of #HostileEnvironment is limited to #WindrushGeneration is simply wrong. EU citizens are already in it and in reality every single migrant or British citizen perceived as one is a victim of this policy. @sajidjavid, we need a review! /end
