Immigration Law Issues

Born in a small village on the beautiful tropical island of Mauritius, Shah Peerally moved to the United States in the 1990s, where he studied law. After graduating, he formed the Law Offices of Shah Peerally, which ultimately became the Shah Peerally law group. During his law school days, Shah was a witness to the sad events of 9/11, which naturally caused wide spread anger. Consequently, Shah noticed a lot of indiscriminate violence on the immigrant community in the US. As an immigrant and a law student, it was difficult for him to understand the motivation behind the religious extremism being rampantly practiced. His main concern then as it is now, is to save the immigrant community from unnecessary backlash and branding as terrorists. It was with this thought that he helped create the "Know Your Rights" guide for immigrants, which went on to become extremely popular, because it spoke as a voice for many immigrants. He later followed up with various speeches in different churches, temples and mosques teaching immigrants about their civil rights and how they should learn to fight back. Today, Shah Peerally is an attorney licensed in California, immigration law. The Peerally Law Group deals with issues related to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) and Customs Border Patrol (CBP) under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Shah’s work has assumed meaningful proportions, especially with the assistance he provided to the students of Tri Valley University, during the scam that affected so many students from outside. As a lawyer, Shah has also acted as a face for many while petitioning the U.S. Government to change laws related to immigration that discriminate against innocent immigrants. As a part of his work in spreading the message of rights for immigrants and creating awareness, Shah has graduated to film-making under his home banner, Shah Peerally Productions Inc.. As a part of this, he has scripted the film Shattered Freedom which was selected at the Third World Movie Festival. In addition he is the executive producer of various sensitive films that deal with immigration issues, such as The Lost Dream, The Immigration Fraud, and The Immigration Interview. The films and his book are an attempt to highlight important problems with regards to immigration and the plight of immigrants.

"The Lost Dream" is a pure fiction inspired by true current events. The movie covers actual hardships faced by many skilled professionals as well as American businesses needing their services while trying to get a visa to enter the United States.

Directed by Renato Asuncion with Joe Barcelone as 'Trent', the president of a heavy weight IT American company and Naz Khan as their lawyer 'Sarah', The Lost Dream revolves around the gripping and exciting story of the break of the American dream.

Shah Peerally Productions Inc., in this movie is trying to make a difference in American Immigration history by uncovering the human face behind the non --immigrant visa applications. This film is their effort to showcase the increasing lack of transparency in the system that denies work visas to those trying legally to make a living in America by honest means.
The movie wants to bring to light three important messages:

1. The arbitrary and capricious use of INA 221 (g), the section of law which is holding many visa applications in limbo by the State Department and the unfair number of denials of L1 and H1B visas by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services;
2. That legal immigration is healthy for the United States and the lack thereof can actually affect the United States economy; and
3. How the immigration system is a labyrinth which only experienced immigration lawyers can navigate and ignorance of the trade might result in a tragedy.

The story depicts an American company which goes through a nightmare because the key person behind the strategic technical support of the firm could not enter the United States on time. The fact that many Americans associated with this firm lost their jobs due to this incident is one of the factors that make this a sensational story.
