Do you know how people become citizens of the United States?
Do you know how people become citizens of the United States? In Immigration Nation, you’ll find out as you guide newcomers along their path to citizenship. Players will learn about immigration laws and what makes someone eligible vs. ineligible to enter and live in the United States.
Players are tasked with guiding boats into the ‘US Immigration Harbor’ and must determine whether they are eligible to enter the harbor and live in the United States based on their short backstory. If they are eligible, admit the boat and select the appropriate port for them to sail into: Born in the USA, Seeking Refuge, Permission to Work, Marriage to a Citizen, Citizen Parents. If they are not eligible, deny the ship’s entry into the harbor. If you are unsure whether a passenger is eligible or not, select the Harbor Guide for a quick refresher on US Immigration laws.
Immigration Nation is part of a suite of games created by iCivics – an organization whose mission is to engage students in meaningful learning around civics.
