Harvard Debate Team Lost To Prison Inmates Who Argued Against Illegal Immigration
Apparently arguing against illegal immigration is a winning issue, or at least it was for a prison debate team that beat HarvardLaw School students.
A group of New York inmates from a maximum security prison in Napanoch, New York, have toppled Harvard’s prestigious debate team in a debate over illegal immigration.
Defending the idea that schools should be able to turn away students who are children of illegal immigrants, the Eastern New York Correctional Debate Team managed to score a victory in a friendly match against the Ivy League undergrads, according to the BBC.
Harvard’s team – which has won the 2015 national title and the 2014 world championship – was a formidable opponent for the group of inmates, who have also notched victories against the teams at West Point and the University of Vermont.
The group of neutral judges apparently felt Harvard’s rebuttal to the prisoners’ anti-illegal immigrant argument wasn’t enough to save their dignity, giving the win to the team of prisoners who take in-prison classes taught by Bard College faculty.
Seems like the GOP should listen to the Eastern New York Correctional Debate Team on this issue or maybe hire a few of the guys to help run the Republican National Committee (RNC).
