    Use of evidence: 4.8 6
    Delivery skill: 4.4 5
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 6
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.2 5.4
    Identification of key points: 4.4 5.4
    Comments: You do a good job of using evidence to ground your arguments. You also answer the major criticisms from your opponent. You should make sure though not to get exclusively focused on the points that she is making. You made some good points in your opening speech that it would have been nice to see carried though in support of your position. You do an excellent job of reframing the debate around your points, and you do an excellent job of grounding your position with evidence. I particularly was impressed by your break down of her own evidence. My biggest suggestion is to not let drop things that she did not answer. You had a good argument about the loss of their culture that was unanswered and would have helped you.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Maria Feliz

    Reason for Decision:

    Overall, this was an impressive debate. Both sides did a great job of engaging in a high-level arguments about this topic. In the end, I found the opposition's argument that we have a moral imperative to stop the root causes for current refugee problems that we created. Moreover, the opposition is able to articulate why they want to stay is only because the conditions are so bad back at home, conditions that we help to create. This is because they will be exploited here and unfairly become second-class citizens. Great job by both debaters! I greatly enjoyed your exchange.
