Why do immigrants in the United Kingdom need to have an Biometric Residence Card, when people with a British nationality don't need to give biometrics to prove their identity to gain services?

A British citizen with British nationality can use a provisional driving license to get a bank account, rent housing, work, get healthcare and claim benefits, all without needing to give the government any biometric information. But an immigrant who wants British citizenship must have a Biometric Residence Card.

Why do immigrants coming to the UK need to provide biometrics to access services, whilst those with a British nationality do not?
What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
