    1. I agree; I think the right has made a mistake in its choice of presenters at least in so far as it pertains to UAFA. They seem to be targeting CIR rather than UAFA per se, by virtue of this choice. These people are anti immigration completely and I think that kind of extremism will have a rebound effect. I dont think they will be taken seriously and I do not think they will be well versed on the UAFA core issues. Lets wait and see I may be wrong. I feel as if they are wasting their time, because they will have ZERO impact on the majority on the committee – they would have been wiser to have chosen moderates against UAFA. There problem. Thanks for your continued support. Mel
