This high-school-level deliberation activity asks the following question: Should U.S. communities be allowed to provide “sanctuary” to protect undocumented immigrants from removal by federal authorities?
It includes a deliberation reading.

Deliberation teaches people how to discuss controversial issues by carefully considering multiple perspectives and searching for consensus. In preparation for deliberations, all participants read common, balanced background information on the issue. During the discourse, they offer arguments for each position on a contested public issue, first drawing from the text and then bringing in their own experiences.
