Breaking the law, breaking the law
About half a million children born or raised in the UK will reportedly not gain automatic citizenship after Brexit. Previously, people born in the UK after 1983 could become British citizens automatically if one parent was British or “settled” – meaning they had lived in the UK for five years prior to their child's birth. As part of their ‘Brexit’ series, Channel 4 will air an episode of Dispatches entitled: ‘Brexit – How to Get a British Passport,’ exploring the complex process of becoming a citizen, with a focus on the ongoing uncertainty over the future of EU nationals in the UK.
