Hi Andrew (and list),
The Wired High Rise Project in Melbourne looked at residents' computer use, many of whom were migrants. Its final report is here: http://www.sisr.net/publications/0603wiredfinal.pdf. The focus was more on bridging the digital divide, but they did look at what residents used their computers for.
There also might be some useful stuff in Linda Leung's _Virtual Ethnicity_ (2005 Ashgate Publishing), though her focus is race/ethnicity rather than migrant status.

We have a project at Trinity starting, researching immigrants' internet use
here in the Irish context. In particular, we're interested in how immigrants
are accessing local government and social services online, but also how the
internet is used for political activity, including political activity
related to the country of origin. I'd be very grateful if anyone could
suggest useful reading in this area (somewhat to my surprise, an archive
search yielded few results).
