While the idea of border security is always innately political, it is even more so right now. Combined with immigration policy, border security helps shape what our country looks like. More importantly, immigration policy helps shape the future electorate, which some people believe will have a dramatic impact on the country’s political future. So, the first thing you should consider is how deeply you want to delve into politics, motivations, and partisan differences. If you do, then you could choose a niche thesis statement focusing on those issues. In addition, you could have a compelling hook if you lean into partisan ideas. You could even use a hook that is frequently repeated, but factually untrue, as your hook, and then use facts to challenge it in your paper.

Some thesis ideas for border security include:
