Germany Thursday proposed limiting access to welfare benefits for EU immigrants, after Britain won the right to impose such curbs in controversial reforms to its ties with the bloc.Under a draft law drawn up by Labor Minister Andrea Nahles, unemployed European citizens living in Germany would qualify for social assistance only if they have lived in the country for at least five years.Berlin had for a long time been opposed to imposing such limits but changed its stance after a federal court ruled in December that every EU citizen, even if unemployed, has the right to claim welfare benefits after residing in Germany for more than six months.
