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.

Is the Department of Homeland Security being overzealous while dealing with non-white immigrants? Ahmad is lucky to find a good lawyer in Sarah. She is willing to go that extra mile to make sure that justice is done and the American judicial system can uphold the values that it stands for.
The Immigration Lawyer is short, precise, and concise. Ahmad is like any other immigrant who is seeking asylum without much knowledge of the strict laws. The book gives wonderful insight into the American judicial system. The fact that there are lawyers who want to help people who are are vulnerable because of their race, religion, color etc is heartening. The book highlights the rights and options available for immigrants seeking asylum and helps to highlight their actual plight and status through the protagonist's story. The attacks on innocents by people who have limited knowledge about different nationalities and religions show how ignorance and hatred actually destroys the fabric of our society. Go ahead, pick up the book. It surely is worth a read.
