The UK is to halve to three months the time EU migrants without realistic job prospects can claim benefits.
David Cameron said the "magnetic pull" of UK benefits had to be addressed so people came for the right reasons and the rules "put Britain first".
The prime minister also warned people in the UK illegally: "We will find you, we will send you home."
Labour said the PM's rhetoric masked a record of "failure" on immigration and "firm action" was needed.
Ministers have been reluctant to say how many people are likely to be affected by benefit curbs, although BBC research suggests it will be no more than about 10,000.

Gee... what a concept... an elected public servant who actually cares about his country and wants to send illegal aliens back to wherever they belong.
They lost their original names and the 200 years of history that went with them.
Isn’t it a little late for UK?
Never too late. That’s their homeland. People will eventually fight for their home & their people if the government doesn’t do something.
I hope so. I know Americans would. And harkening back to the days of Winston Churchill I guess they could have it in them.
But so many former colonial folks walked right in to UK under birthright citizenship it has created a skewed demographic.
He’s a politician therefore a professional liar through his spin doctors. Wait for the proof in the pudding.
