Playing games with peoples’ lives

While lying on my new couch and watching reality TV (it is the weekend, after all!) I had an idea for an immigration game show – with contestants competing for Permanent Residency.

Then I thought that maybe that would be cruel, and playing with people’s lives – much like the game the government makes people play

I started searching for ‘immigration games’ and found an Opinion LA blog discussing I Can End Deportation – a bit of a nerdy on-line game in which you can be one of five characters — from an undocumented Mexican immigrant to a Japanese student to a girl who thinks she’s a citizen — and try to avoid getting deported. And suffer all the problems and indignities that illegal immigrants in the USA have.

For an even more-to-the point game, especially if your brain needs a rest on weekends, is El Migrante – the rules of the game are very simple – avoid the police as long as you can!
