What is the format & Topics of the debate?

The six discussion topics will be immigration:
- Debt and entitlements
- Supreme Court
- Foreign hot spots
- Fitness to be President
The debate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate.
