The Irish border has been a key stumbling block to Brexit because Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland is not.

The concern is that Brexit would mean the return of a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland — and renewal of tensions between those two countries.

This segment aired on November 1, 2019.
