The Next Generation Politics Chapter of Oxford High School in Oxford, Mississippi recently hosted its first Deliberative Discussion on the topic of the refugee crises occurring in several nations.

The aisle was split, with a divide between how discussants thought countries should react to current influxes of refugees in several countries around the world. The discussion was largely centered around the question of whether or not opening borders could reduce unneeded tension in a nation. Those who opposed ‘loose borders’ made very clear the harms that hyper-immigration could bring to a country’s economy and safety. Several members argued against the aforementioned point, however, stating that nations need to center their focuses on humanitarianism as a whole and not oppress any human being regardless of the individual’s citizenship to a particular nation.
