Because neither we nor the UK will honor their passports.

Really? The Iroquois, who occupy parts of the US and Canada, were essentially colonized by the UK and then the US. Now the UK and US are not going to honor their passports? For some reason, we allow Indian nations to make their own passports, but do not honor them (post 9/11 rules). BRB, invading country, letting its citizens make their own passports, then making all its citizens get my passports to be able to reenter their own country.

The US granted some kind of special one-time exception to the team, but the UK will not accept the passports. The team refuses to get US passports because it would essentially mean denouncing the soverignty of the Iroquios nation.
