  • There are strong reactions in Northern Ireland to the idea migrants from Eastern Europe are receiving free money and claiming social security benefits. Solicitor Barbara Muldoon, an immigration expert, sets the record straight on what benefits most migrants are receiving and are entitled to. In pt one, we learn the views of a homeless Polish man in Belfast, who receives no benefits, who has been a victim of numerous racial attacks and how this has affected his life. First broadcast on Spotlight on 4 December 2007. There is an example of bad language used by one of the interviewees which has been muted at 4'17".
