For this research paper, you will select one border issue and explore it more in depth. The issue does not have to be local; however, it should pertain to the US/Mexico Border. This is an informative paper, so you will not argue for one side but rather look at multiple perspectives on the issue. You can select the same topic you wrote about for your editorial essay and expand on it, or you can select a new topic. However, ensure that the topic is significant to the border area and its people. Some ideas for topics include the following:
