Critical Issues in Debate: Luis M Magallon Garcia on the Immigration Topic

Posted in College, Critical Issues in Debate with tags , , on April 23, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

Luis Magallon is one of the best debaters I ever judged and one of the best judges/coaches in the college community. During his time at Cal State Fullerton he has contributed to many innovations in kritik debate. This discussion is focused on whether or not this year’s visa topic actually came to terms with the most important immigration issues. This podcast is centered on the experience of the undocumented in both debate and the broader immigration/visa system. We also discuss the way identity politics is being deployed in contemporary debates and Luis’ concern that many contemporary race theory is overly modernist. His perspective is essential to consider when asking the question: what did we learn from the immigration topic?
