On the 26th of November, UK Prime Minister David Cameron wrote an article in the Financial Times announcing a “crackdown” on EU immigration, vowing to restrict access to benefits and tighten the rules on free movement, as well as threatening the deportation of people sleeping rough or begging. FEANTSA opposes arbitrary and unlawful expulsions, calls for the respect of procedural safeguards acknowledged by the EU acquis on free movement and asks the EU and its Member States to urgently set clearer rules which would ensure that no EU citizen exercising the right to free movement be left destitute due to lack of adequate support services.
