The Howard Government plans to restrict new immigrants' access to social welfare programs in Australia. Immigrants' use of social welfare has been a focus of political attention in the United States for some time, especially the use made by illegal migrants. David Simcox outlines the current eligibility of non-citizens to social welfare programs in the United States and provides estimates of the costs. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
