My philosophy is no different than that of any other very, very policy judge. Don't read a K and you can do what you want.
I have almost no experience with the immigration topic so super specific topic intricacies are going to need to be explained to me.
Some more specific thoughts
Topicality: I like limits. Aff proliferation is kinda bad so if your interp can solve prolif decently, I'll probably like it. Clearly articulate standards and impacts and I'll vote for it.
Critiques: I have no experience with reading or researching K's and because of that I really don't like them. It'll be hard to win a K in front of me.
Counterplans: Read anything. Counterplan debates are the best.
Disads: Nothing like a good DA and case debate. I miss those especially after the EduTrashtion topic.
Framework/K Affs: See the fake email address above.
Theory: Very under utilized part of debate for anything other than a time skew. I went for condo bad a few too many times when I shouldn't have but that's because the theory debate is fun. If you extend theory, go slow please. It sucks to flow.
