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.

A MOVIE ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND IMMIGRATION LAWS.

 

By Shah Peerally, Esq.

Shah Peerally Productions proudly presents "Shattered Freedom," the latest episode in the story of  "An American Dream," from the series, "The Immigration Lawyer." Inspired by the hardships and struggles faced by Shah Peerally himself, as well as his law firm's and his own personal experiences as a career immigration lawyer, the film is an uncompromising work of fiction depicting the trials and tribulations of immigrants seeking to partake of the American Dream. It evokes the hopes and aspirations of all immigrants to America and unravels the challenges of the American legal system and ultimate assimilation into American society that virtually every immigrant can relate to.

 

The first part of the film recounts the story of a woman who has emerged from an abusive relationship and overcome insurmountable odds to arrive in America, only to see her dream shattered bit by bit. While the second part follows the journey of Ahmad, a man fleeing Iraq to the sanctuary of America, only to face an ordeal he had never imagined. But as with Shah Peerally's other films, "Shattered Freedom" incorporates real-life, firsthand experiences of immigration attorneys and attempts to cover a swath of major social issues related to immigration and immigrants, making the stories in this film more than just ordinary stories.

 

Produced entirely in the Bay Area in Northern California by Shah Peerally Productions, "Shattered Freedom" showcases new local talents, with direction by Renato Asuncion, Joe Barcelone and Manny Valencia, music by Mahesh Mishra, Parminder Guri, Samir Date, Somaiya Dipalee and Geeta Madhuri, and choreography by Anna Attrey. The cast includes Shah Peerally as a lawyer, and Pavneet Saluja, Jimmy Sidhu, Jagruti Shah, Sameer Khera, Naz Khan, Mohini Foryan, Harish Sharma, Waqas Younus, Chaz Laredo, Akram Khan, Pawan Bangar, Ritu Nischal, Navin Tekchandani, Jennifer Spence, Kasim Mohammadi, Hamed Rasti, Poonam Sansanwal, and a host of other gifted Bay Area individuals.

 

With its films, documentaries and radio shows, the Shah Peerally Production House endeavors to achieve its goals of (1) educating immigrants about their rights; (2) affording a chance to local talents; and (3) recognizing lawyers and other individuals fighting for human and civil rights.
