Tom Brake MP said "The Government must end the sickening game they are playing with millions of families"

"Once again, this Conservative Brexit government is confirming it sees EU nationals living in the UK as nothing more than pawns in the negotiations.

"Amber Rudd should be ashamed. The Government must end the sickening game they are playing with millions of families and give EU citizens who have made the UK their home the right to stay.
"There is an overwhelming moral and pragmatic case to do so."
