We are making this game for kids ages 9-13 because they start to understand more about legal services. I thinks this is a good age group because they get to learn about what is going on in the u.s and then they wonder why their parents get deported. I want this game to be about immigrants and the problems they face. I also want this game to have information what some legal services that people face here in the United States.Our game is going to be made in Laredo, Texas. Laredo has immigration officers because they are next to the boarder, but there has been immigrants that lived there for years, but have never broken the law. They fear deportations and they only work to put food in the table for their family.The game is going to be a game where you have to make smart decisions where you go too or do.We choose American Gateways to be our organization for our game because some people are not legal to be here in the u.s.
