Brexit: It's been five years since the UK voted to leave the EU
DW, 24 Jun 2021
It was five years ago today when voters in the UK decided to leave the European Union. The day Brexit began and the end is nowhere in sight. Tonight concern is growing for at least 150,000 Europeans living in the UK and tens of thousands of Britons residing in the EU who are on the verge of being classed as undocumented migrants.
In another post-Brexit fallout, they're expected to lose their citizens' rights, including to work, study and rent property, while some could even face deportation. That’s because they haven’t applied for post-Brexit residency in the countries where they're living. The deadline for many of those programs is next week.
