Stop providing legal aid to anyone who's not a UK resident

Petition Details

Stop providing legal aid payments or state provided lawyers to anyone in the UK who wasn't born in the UK, or illegally entered the UK via a route without prior application.

The UK taxpayer should not have to suffer the burden of paying for the legal defence of asylum seekers, illegal entrants, or anyone facing deportation for crimes against humanity. No court should be funded to assist in the stopping of any deportation order.
