based on the play The Immigrant: A Hamilton Family Album by Mark Harelik

The true story of Haskell Harelik, a young Russian Jew who instead of passing through Ellis Island, enters through Galveston and struggles to assimilate into a rural community in Texas. Commonly referred to as the 'Galveston Movement,' Harelik's story begins like so many others in 1909, peddling a pushcart full of bananas and wares - but his fate is changed forever when he asks Milton, a small-town banker, and his Southern Baptist wife for a drink of water from their well. Harelik's compelling story of opportunity, success and the challenges of educating a new community is the essence of the American experience.

Shah Peerally Releases His First Book in The Series, 'The Immigration Lawyer: Asylum'
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2014

Shah Peerally's book, 'The Immigration Lawyer: Asylum' is basically a work of fiction that narrates the story of Ahmad who flees Iraq from the clutches of the Iraqi Government and seeks refuge in the US, but ends up finding himself stuck up in a similar situation. It is a story based during the reign of Saddam Hussein, where Ahmed is wrongly suspected by the Iraqi Government of being a CIA agent and is tortured relentlessly. He manages to escape to the US, but while entering California on a valid visa, he is detained on immigration charges and placed under custody. The US Government believes that he is a terrorist. This book by Shah Peerally is an attempt to address the issues regarding US immigration law and its flaws. In fact, it reflects the sentiments of several immigrants who had to go through the difficult process. Though, this book is a work of fiction, it is more like a guide that perfectly illustrates numerous immigration issues along with the American justice system that always triumphs in the end, especially when those accused are innocent. 'The Immigration Lawyer: Asylum' is currently available on print. Its Kindle version will be available in the next 9 business days. An audio version will also be released soon.

However, it was in the 90's when he moved to the US to study law. While studying there he witnessed the sad event of 9/11, which later resulted into resentment of Americans towards The Immigrant community. There were several incidents of violence where immigrants were randomly targeted. However, after the completion of his degree, he laid the foundations of what today is known as Shah Peerally Law Group.
