At least they'll get their benefits...

"For a country that has equated growth with prosperity throughout much of its history, 300 million is prompting soul-searching about everything from energy use and sprawl, to the consumption of natural resources and border control. The Census Bureau's population clock meter will hit the momentous number 300 million barely a month before midterm elections in which illegal immigration is a volatile issue.

It also comes at a time when financing of Social Security and Medicare is in jeopardy. As 79 million baby boomers are heading into retirement and live living longer, there are fewer working-age people to support the benefits with their payroll taxes. Some argue that immigrants help fund the system and fill jobs. Others counter that the estimated 12 million immigrants here illegally further strain the social safety net and take jobs away from Americans."
