President Clinton's fiscal 1998 budget calls for restoring welfare benefits, Medicaid and food stamps for disabled legal immigrants, saying immigrants were touched "more adversely than any other group" by last year's welfare reform legislation. Although the Republican-controlled Congress opposes the idea, Clinton's budget plan would keep on the rolls an estimated 350,000 of the 500,000 immigrants scheduled to lose their benefits in August and September.
