    Use of evidence: 5 5
    Delivery skill: 5.5 5
    Coherence of arguments: 5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5.4 5.7
    Identification of key points: 5.2 5.6
    Comments: No new args in the final speech, really good delivery, really well-structured first speech I would suggest changing the structure of your first speech to include numbered/designated points

    The decision is for the Opposition: Ian Chung

    Reason for Decision:

    This round was very very close, but it came down to timing and impact analysis. The answers to the negs evidence needed to come earlier in the round as they were new in the 2ar which means I can't vote on them. The neg has also argued that the short term negative economic impacts of refugees will cause problems before they are able to balance out in the long run, which answers the diversity, economic, and rights points. I think the aff needs a better answer to "letting refugees die on the streets of a politically stable country is no better than letting them die on the streets of a politically unstable country".
