They will not always be young and fit. If they are making contributions now shouldn't they expect pension and other benefits when they retire? Personally I am not sure that EU benefits everybody financially. I think some are better off and some are worst off because of it. And then there are the non-financial issues... like culture and religion. But I guess those matter more when talking about non EU immigrants.
