Brexit will certainly have an influence on Polish immigration into the UK but in the longer run. Currently there are about 1 million Poles in UK. First declarations by British politicians suggest those settled immigrants won`t be deported or sth, they might only lose some benefits. However, newcomers will sooner or later find out they must fulfill rigorous requirements to settle in the UK. That`s what the whole Brexit is about - stop massive immigration into the country. Brits are fed up with the situation.
Some immediate results can be observed, though. Young people with British passports are afraid they will lose the privileges that the European Union gives them.

Young people — including all the young Britons who voted overwhelmingly to remain — want to live, love and work anywhere in Europe they choose.
Adele is one of them. She loves London, where she completed high school. She loves its openness. She cannot believe her British passport may soon — unless sanity is somehow restored — no longer be a European Union passport. And so Poland beckons, just as Germany, with a similar law, has beckoned since Brexit for some British Jews of German origin. History comes full circle.
