Our winning debaters this month were Kate Gerasimova and Nasser Mohammed, arguing in favor of the motion.  Arguments detailed the fractured history of Islam and the socioeconomic oppression of Muslims, which leads to radicalization and presents irreparable barriers toward successful integration.

Danielle Solinski and Jabber Al-Bihani were this month's debaters arguing against the motion.  Points of contention included legal arguments stating it is perfectly acceptable under American law to accept immigrants into the country, as well as compelling narratives highlighting the struggles one overcame to successfully assimilate into American society.
