ICED! I Can End Deportation is a computer game in which the player takes on the role of an illegal immigrant. The creators have stated the purpose is to put the gamer in the shoes of the character and see how life is for illegal immigrants.[citation needed]

ICED (standing for I Can End Deportation) is a role-playing video game about immigration launched by American studio Breakthrough in early 2008.[citation needed] The name plays off the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).[citation needed] The game puts the player in the role of an immigrant in the United States.[citation needed] The game highlights the limits on immigrants' rights which were a result of immigration laws passed in 1996.[citation needed] Players must avoid deportation by participating in community service and keeping a low profile.[citation needed] The characters in the game were based on real situations.[citation needed] ICED has also been a part of school curricula for better student understanding of legal and human rights issues.[citation needed]
