Getting arrested can have serious consequences for non-citizens living in the United States. Even a minor crime or dismissed case could lead to deportation. But many non-citizens, their families, and even the lawyers representing them, don’t know about the potential immigration consequences of their cases. An uninformed decision can be the difference between going home or being deported.
CUP collaborated with The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP), designer Petra Farinha, and illustrator Lau Giraudo, to produce this interactive graphic to help non-citizens, their families, and lawyers to navigate the legal system and avoid deportation. A digital choose-your-own adventure, Don’t Get Iced shows what can happen to non-citizens who have been arrested. The site also provides information for lawyers to learn how to better advise their non-citizen clients.
