The NOOSE PIA and Illegal Immigration

Recommended Posts

Trooper Fera

We all know that Niko entered the United States illegally, but there is reason to believe that the game planned to focus more on that issue in earlier stages due to a rather undeveloped NOOSE branch.


In earlier stages of development, the NOOSE Patriot was to be an LCPD Patriot (Hence the polpatriot name and early screens of it), however, for some reason it was changed into a NOOSE Patriotism and Immigration Authority vehicle, along with the addition of the NOOSE Cruiser. It seems kind of odd that a "Patriotism and Immigration Authority" exists in game and plays no role in the plot whatsoever. In the end, these two vehicles are used by the LCPD and ASP at 3 - 4 stars instead of NOOSE.


Doesn't it seem slightly odd that there is a Immigration Authority in game that is unfinished and plays no role in the storyline?

I always thought NOOSE = SWAT, what does NOOSE stand for?

What I find even more odd is the Immigration Authority vehicles also show up if you're playing as Johnny or Luis. I'm guessing it was most likely a late addition to the game that R* didn't have enough time to flesh out more.

Hmmm nice bike

Rockstar definitely didn't have enough time to figure out how police and jurisdictions work in the game. Early screenshots taken in Alderney show squad cars with no livery. Alderney is a separate state from Liberty, and the police wear uniforms based on the New Jersey state police and even refer to themselves as "State Police," so they probably wanted Alderney to have separate cop cars but ran into issues getting them to actually work.


As for the NOOSE patrol units, I'm guessing they felt that with Niko it would make more sense to change it to an immigration authority chasing after him, but they probably had problems changing that with Johnny and Luis. Interesting idea, but it seemed very last-minute and not thought out well enough.
