    Lincoln Douglas Debate Case Outline Affirmative Introductory Quote: “ Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially , are descended from immigrants and revolutionists ” . It is because I agree with Franklin D. Roosevelt who was President of the United States from March 4,1933 to April 12, 1945 in the position that child immigrants should be allowed to remain in the United States after crossing the border, that I feel compelled to affirm today ’ s resolution. Resolved: The United States should aid the child immigrants involved in the Border Crisis. For clarification of today ’ s round, I offer the following definitions: Word: Immigrants Source: Merriam Webster online Definition: A person who comes to a country to live there. Word: Revolutionists Source: Merriam Webster online Definition: A person related to, involved in, or supporting a political revolution or complete change. The highest value within today ’ s round is deontology. Deontology is defined as the theory or study of moral obligation. Source: Merriam Webster online Deontology is most important in today ’ s round because as humans it is our moral duty to provide assistance to those in need, especially those such as children who need assistance and guidance in all areas. The best criterion for evaluating this resolution is altruism. Altruism is defined as unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others. Source: Merriam Webster online It best achieves my value of deontology, because it demonstrates that moral obligation or moral duty is necessary to provide for these abandoned children. In affirming the resolution, I offer the following contentions: Contention I: These children are fleeing poverty, starvation, and a general lack of opportunity. Warrant: These children come from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, which are all third world countries. Impact: By allowing these children to stay, we are removing them from their impoverished homeland and providing an opportunity for a better future. Contention II: These children are fleeing violence, abuse, and sex trafficking. Warrant: Central American countries are a large source and destination for women and children trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor. Violent crime rates are considered critical in Central America by the United States Department of State.    Impact: By allowing these children to remain in the United States, we are removing them from high levels of human trafficking and gang violence. Contention III: These children are seeking to reunite with parents and other family members already in the United States. Warrant: Many of the children have some sort of family already living in the United States. Impact: By allowing these children to stay, we are reuniting children with their families. Conclusion Option 1: I have shown you that these children are fleeing poverty, starvation, and a general lack of opportunity, these children are fleeing violence, abuse, and sex trafficking, and these children are seeking to reunite with parents and other family members already in the United States. For these reasons, we can clearly conclude that deontology should be upheld and the United States should aid the child immigrants involved in the Border Crisis. Conclusion Option 2: Matthew, author of the Gospel of Matthew in the Holy Bible (New English Translation) states that “ In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you. ”  Clearly, we must affirm the resolution.
