Do the remainers want that to continue ?
The UK is bursting at the seams, who is going to look after you in your old age?
Even foreigners who have settled in this country do you not want more people in the country.
I see the Romanian president wants all his people to come home, the media even interviewed Romanians saying they are going home.
If you were Romanian which country would you like to work in/live in, It's not rocket science.
I don't know where you get the idea that EU citizens cannot be told to leave. The freedom of movement is based upon the right to work. Someone who is not working, studying, or self-employed can be asked, after 90 days to leave the country, apply for a residence permit and/or demonstrate that they have sufficient personal funds to continue staying without recourse to public benefits. Each country handles it slightly differently.
In France for example, you have to be employed, self-employed, a student, a family member of an EU citizen living in France, or unemployed with proof of financial means (if you are under 65, you must have EUR 537 per month if you are single with no children, and EUR 805 if you are a couple with no children; rates increase for each additional number of children. Rates for those over 65 are EUR 805 if you live alone and EUR 1,247 if you are a couple.
In Germany, you have to apply for a 'right of residence' certificate after 90 days. In order to obtain such a certificate, you have to show one or more of the following:
-An employment contract/offer of a job
-Registration on trade register/membership of a professional body
-Proof of receipt of a pension, if you’re retired
-Proof of health insurance
-Proof of monthly earnings, if you’re self-employed
The UK could have done something similar, but never has.
