Two award-winning debate teams will be tackling the timely topic of immigration at a public event on Tuesday evening, April 9. 

MTSU and Belmont students will demonstrate exemplary political discourse as they consider issues concerning the topic of Immigration in America, and particularly the economic, humanitarian, and safety and security impacts on the state of Tennessee.

Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Murfreesboro/Rutherford County, the debate will be held at 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at Murfreesboro City Hall. Doors open at 6:00 PM.

A cornerstone for these teams is integrity, respect and kindness, as well as preparation on the issues based on current law, history, and more.

Both teams will be prepared to argue either for or against the questions presented and will adhere to established rules for arguments and rebuttals in the allotted time. This format does not allow questions from the audience.

It is important to note that team members may not be arguing their personal beliefs on any questions considered. The League will share our national position on immigration after the debate.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership in the League is open to men and women of all ages.
