Brexit: Theresa May's offer on citizens’ rights

From EU Observer

"After May finished her presentation, not a single EU leader commented or asked questions, according to an EU source".

From Euronews

"After a year of speculation over the rights of EU nationals living in Britain after Brexit, new proposals unveiled by UK Prime Minister Theresa May in Brussels will mean that those who have lived in Britain for five years will be granted the same rights as UK nationals. A new “settled EU” immigration status will grant some of Britain’s 3.2 million EU nationals access to healthcare, education and other benefits, as well as the right to remain living in the country".
