Pressure is growing on EU citizens working in the UK. Not so long ago, they were welcome members of the labor force. But with the increasingly heated discussion about Brexit, hostility is on the rise.
The number of non-EU citizens moving to Germany for work has risen by about 20 percent for a third year in a row. Figures show most of these foreigners are men from India, China and the United States.
European Council President Donald Tusk said that the EU should not be hasty just because of Brexit fatigue. French and German leaders have signaled that they would be unwilling to offer another deadline extension.
The consequences of a no-deal Brexit would be much worse for Europe than for the UK, argues British historian Timothy Garton Ash in an exclusive interview with DW.
The German president has warned that Britain's exit from the European Union "cannot become an endless horror story." Concerns are growing that pro-Brexit parties could disrupt next month's EU parliamentary elections.
