Welcome to Hot Topics!

Each month a different topic that is a hot spot either in the news or amongst our teenage readers will be highlighted. The purpose is to put the information out there for you to have, to show both sides of the story to get you thinking, and then for you to add your comments so that you have a forum for your voice and can learn what other teens think too.

This months issue is illegal immigration. It’s been in the news a lot lately. It was a topic discussed with the recent elections. And many community teens have been voicing their opinions about this in local schools. But how much do you really know, and how much do you think you know?
