NAME: Marco Gomez-Camarena, Washington D.C.
TITLE: Immigrant Soldiers for the United States of America
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: Military Enrollment, Immigration, America
SUMMARY: “The solution to the immigration debate does not lie in creating more barriers or naturalizing immigrants. The solution is as follows: undocumented immigrants who have met the proper requirements shall be enlisted into the military. While this solution may be deemed as sending immigrants to die, it will create an influx of much needed soldiers fighting for incentives while also creating a more patriotic future citizen.”

NAME: Haley Adams, California
TITLE: A proposal to end diplomatic ties with the Holy See until clergy members accused of sex scandal are tried in the Holy See’s tribunal system.
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: The Roman Catholic Church and individuals victimized by members of the clergy.
SUMMARY: “The lack of punishment for criminals is not only encouraging continuing crime among the clergy, but among all of society. After all, the Roman Catholic church is the supposed moral example for people all over the world. Thus, the United States must take action. It is our duty to rectify this injustice, and demand the Holy See, which is its own sovereign entity included in the United Nations, be held to the same standards as other countries around the world.”

NAME: Sam Ingalls, Louisiana
TITLE: To eliminate all tax exemptions given to religious and church organizations.
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: All church and/or religious organizations in the United States

NAME: Gregory Cui, Model UN
TITLE: Restoring food security in Western Africa.
MAJOR AREAS TO BE AFFECTED: Members of the economic community of West African States, namely Benin, Burkina, Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.
SUMMARY: “The solution to creating food security in West Africa is an indirect one. Many West African nations are similar in that they possess valuable natural resource reserves but lack the funds, technology, or infrastructure to make use of them. As a result remain stagnant … The United Nations, through the International Development Agency, must provide grants and interest-free loans to West African Nations to allow them to more effectively tap into their own resources.”
