|British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government suffered its first defeat over its Brexit plan when the House of Lords voted 358-256 in favor of an amendment to the government’s draft plan for leaving the European Union. The change would protect the right of the three million EU immigrants in the U.K. to stay after Britain leaves the trading bloc. May’s government reportedly hopes to remove the amendment in a fresh vote in the House of Commons. May has said she wants to provide protections for EU citizens in the U.K., but only after negotiating similar guarantees for Britons living in EU countries.
