About This File

Thursday File - 2/14/2013

 

This week's author proceeds go directly to the Vince Binder scholarship at the NAUDL. That's entirely what you get. Might as well purchase twice just to make sure you got it.

 

As a bonus, here are over 400 pages of politics cards. You'll lose money if you don't buy it.

 

This week's file zeros in directly on Cross-x.com's continuing scenario: Comprehensive Immigration Reform. State of the Union updates are included, as well as some fresh links, political capital theory and a dust-up of the internal links.

 

This file was written by Chris Crowe, with massive contributions from Gabe Murillo, Josh Gonzalez, Bria Frame and past authors Colin Roark and Stephanie Garrett. Roughly one million years of debate experience, give or take a few. Please support their efforts and the NAUDL.
