About This File

This week’s Thursday File brings you an updated version of the immigration disadvantage. Following the shutdown/debt ceiling debate, Obama emerged the winner and has the upper hand moving forward on immigration reform. However, he needs to maintain his political capital to shepherd a deal in the House that will garner Republican support. The uniqueness evidence is even better than last weeks. Also included are a wide variety of aff responses including no pass cards, a2 obama’s pc, and reasons the bill will inevitably be delayed but pass later. Additionally, there are some general thumpers/gridlock cards to deal with any other potential DA’s you might encounter. Happy debating
