If 16kadams wins this debate, either Con did an awful job or there is major bias.

Open borders are a total sham that are pushed only by delusional (and misinformed) libertarians, far lefties who hate America, Corporations, and Democrats who want votes.

Is Katie Couric also a b*tch, Mr. Trump?

Lannan, myself, and Logical-Master were all candidates for Team Con's second position, but Roy declined to have a teammate..... his loss. I hope he'll run the arguments and rebuttals I'm thinking of.

Interesting...I think he should've chosen someone, but...oh well...

Indeed, though we can all agree that there needs to be an immigration reform it just seems unreasonable to have an open boarder policy.

Closed borders are a total sham pushed by Koch brother lovers who don't understand how the free movement of labor--like the free movement of capital (e.g. Free trade)--is, on balance, beneficial to the economy.

That awkward moment when somebody points out that the Koch Brothers support more immigration. And it shouldn't be surprising.

Big corporations have a lot to benefit from "free" immigration. The average American? Not so much.

But working class Americans are just nativists for daring care about their nation's well being, amiright?

I dunno. Like on most political issues, I don't really have a stance. There are a LOT of pros and cons to this issue, so there's quite a bit of subjectivity involved in how you weigh them against each other; and, as is the case with all politicized topics, there's an ample amount of contradictory academic studies on it. It's not hard to make a good case for either side of this resolution.
