To put the senator's figures into perspective: he states that 870,000 non-Australians cost $15 billion in welfare.

That is, $15,000,000,000/870,000 = $17,241 per non_Australian.

So how does this cost a family of four people in Western Sydney $2,500 a year which is handed to the government, which then gives it to people who are not Australians?

The figures don't add up amid the woefully inexact phrasing.

As usual, this 'one size fits' all approach to policy so hated by conservatives doesn't take into account genuine exceptions.
