About This File

This week’s file includes an update for the comprehensive immigration reform DA (along with the files from the past two weeks). The main focus of my work was a uniqueness sweep but some other noticeable updates and additions include:

 

Impact turns (and neg a2: impact turns) – There are a number of benefits to having the ability to impact turn the politics DA on the aff. You might hit a CP that you didn’t predict and are lacking a good solvency deficit/offense, your aff might be on the wrong side of a link turn, etc – impact turning politics will get you back in the game. If you’re negative, this file covers negative responses to potential impact turns and help will prevent you from being caught off guard. Since the immigration DA will probably be alive for a big chunk of this next semester, this will be an excellent file to have even if you’re not debating this weekend.

 

Impact update – includes a number of new/recent cards – specifically, a hot 1nc card that says the impact is quicker than any benefit from infrastructure investment.

 

New internal link work – with the Senate pursuing their own vision for immigration reforms, the literature has increasingly been pointed towards “obama not key.†This file includes new cards that effectively respond to that.

 

Aff updates – because we can’t always be negative
