Grant an urgent Amnesty to Undocumented Migrants living in the UK - 101,756 Signatures
(Estimated Final Signatures: 102,287 - 19 added in the past 24hrs)

Undocumented Migrants are suffering in silence, with no access to adequate Financial support, or any help. The Government should grant an urgent Amnesty of 5years to those with no criminal record so that they could live their lives as normal human beings and pay tax to help the UK economy.

The Government responsed to this petition on 18th March 2021 (View Full Response)
The Immigration Rules already provide for undocumented migrants to regularise their status where appropriate, but such a provision would unduly reward those who have not complied with immigration law.

In the UK, it is illegal to carry non-lethal self defence weapons such as Pepper Spray. I want this to be made legal if used only in the action of self-defence.
