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. Good luck!

Important Notice to Teachers: Immigration Nation was designed to help students learn the eligibility requirements for U.S. legal residence and citizenship. In the years since we updated the game, there has been a shift in both the rhetoric and the policy surrounding immigration in this country. As such, we are currently examining the tone and content of the game to ensure we are approaching the topic with the accuracy and sensitivity it deserves. In the meantime, we encourage you to have conversations with your students about how immigration is presented in the game, national policy debates, and the media.
