Center for Immigration Studies held a panel discussion centered on long term population effects. Mark Krikorian and Steven A. Camarota also discussed the CIS report "100 Million More: Projecting the Impact of Immigration On the U.S. Population, 2007 to 2060." Results projected that current levels of legal and illegal immigration would add more than 100 million people to the nation's population by 2060. The report also showed that immigration had only a small impact on slowing the aging of American society. Numbers USA Executive Director Roy Beck and Senior Fellow from the American Enterprise Institute Ben Wattenberg talked about the significance of the findings and answered questions from the audience.
