Video Game With A Conscious: ICED (I Can End Deportation)

Monday, February 18, 2008

This is pretty cool - the human rights organization Breakthrough launched a new video game on immigration called ICED - I Can End Deportation which you can download from the site at

Here's the scoop:

In the game, you can step inside the shoes of one out of five immigrant teens, each of a different ethnicity and immigration status. The game teaches how U.S. immigration laws detain and deport immigrants while denying them due process and human rights.
I've played through the first part of the game - won my citizenship - and overall it's pretty slick, and a great concept, so check it out if you get the chance.
