The decision is for the Proposition: Allana Spears
Reason for Decision:
This was a very close debate, and it took me a long time to make a decision. Both sides should be commended. In the end, I did not think that the opposition answered the argument that it is a human right issue that trumps other considerations. The proposition also presented sufficient evidence that refugees probably have a positive effect long-term on the economy.
