The hot national topic of immigration reform comes to UCF on Tuesday night, March 26, when members of the UCF Moot Court team and the Legal Studies program debate the topic on a live radio broadcast.

Orlando’s WDBO FM will broadcast the debate from 7 to 8 p.m. from the Morgridge International Reading Center on the main campus. The debate is free and open to the public.

Mel Robbins, a trial lawyer and national radio news commentator, will moderate the student debate, and Dick Batchelor, founder of the Dick Batchelor Management Group and a former member of the Florida House of Representatives, will join the discussion panel. Michael Frumkin, dean of UCF’s College of Health and Public Affairs, will provide the opening remarks.

The students speaking on the side of limited reform are: Kyle Ross, Todd Foster, Jack Flanary and Jessica Sirianni. Arguing for more reform are: Taylor Koshak, Chris Chambers, Brittany Hollenbacher and Justine Poteau.

“We appreciate the opportunity to explore important topics with the students and with the community,” Frumkin said. 

The debate will be broadcast on FM 96.5.
