    TUCSON, Arizona (Reuters) – A controversial iPod and iPad application that makes a game of the perils of sneaking across the U.S.-Mexico border has sparked controversy among activists for immigrant rights.

    In the game "Smuggle Truck," which is due for release next month, a truck bounces along a cartoon desert highway and sheds men, women and children as it hits bumps and hops over creeks and canyons.

    Developers say the game -- the aim of which is to keep immigrants in the bed of the truck as they speed through the border lands -- is to take a satirical swipe at the country's broken immigration system.
