I have no problem with that. Any person who obtains citizenship in a fraudulent way, or supports any kinds of terrorism, should have their citizenship revoked. I'm not keen on offering any of my taxes to those guys to access free legal aid.
I agree while it is obviously wrong to use any fraudulent tricks to gain benefit and appropriate action must be taken against them.
But in my opinion, any person facing any convictions or jury hearing must have the right to access free legal aid if they don't have the means to hire a solicitor. What if they were wrongly accused and they could not present their cases properly without any legal aid, which could lead to an unfair decision.
If repeated offenders use state tax money for legal aid every time they are in front of a jury then why discrimination for naturalized citizens???
I could be wrong because these are my opinion based on limited knowledge of the legal system in Ireland, but it appears that someone here in Ireland idealizes and trying to follow Trump style administration and anti-immigrant policy.
