The four nightmare days of a Spanish woman held in a center for Europeans in London

by archyw

María, a 25-year-old young woman from Valencia, decided to fly to London on May 3 in search of new job opportunities. Throughout 2019 I had already been working for a few months in the UK. And taking advantage of the fact that her sister lived on British soil, she decided to pack her bags again. What she did not expect is that upon her arrival at Gatwick airport they were going to take her to a Foreign Detention Center as she had become an illegal immigrant because she had not properly completed the necessary post-Brexit-era paperwork.

His case reveals the “hostile environment” against foreigners that prevails in the United Kingdom since the entry into force, already for practical purposes, of the divorce with the EU on January 1. If it is for tourism, a stay of up to six months is allowed without giving further explanations. But for those who want to “try to find a job” there is no longer freedom of movement. The rules have completely changed, although there is still a lot of ignorance among citizens.
