EPIC FAIL: DreamActivist CoFounder Files Frivolous Lawsuit Against Immigration Lawyer In Effort To Quash Freedom of Speechby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Oct. 15, 2013, under female-led political movement, Legal Immigration Reform, matriarch, Women Voters
Prerna Lal (Fijian immigrant) is one of the cofounders of DreamActivist.org. She has still been active as of August when she was busy posting The National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) press releases (seen here) and listing Mohammad Abdollahi (Iranian immigrant) as the media contact. Mohammad Abdollahi is her partner in political crime via DreamActivist.org.
Prerna jumped on my radar when Breitbart wrote an article illuminating the founders of DreamActivist.org with a story titled: “DREAMer” Website Teaches Illegal Immigrants “How To Lie Successfully.” That story ultimately spread like wildfire throughout other conservative social network sites and means. However, Breitbart made a mistake to identify leaders of DreamActivist.org as leftists. This is not true. The leaders of DreamActivist and NIYA have been busy protesting President Obama and other Democratic leaders (who are already on record for supporting CIR). Essentially these radical pseudo immigration leaders have unreasonable anarchist/open borders ideas. They have been receiving guidance from Libertarian leaning lawyers, and in fact one of the DREAM 30 lawyer(s) via David Bennion is related to the Mitt Romney family.
Now we have an official transcript of a court ruling where Prerna Lal filed a frivolous lawsuit against a highly respectable immigration lawyer.
Susan Pai is a Florida immigration lawyer who has been helping the immigrant community for years. I’m a big fan of Lucy Liu in the Kill Bill movie – and I cannot help but think of Ms. Pai as the Lucy Liu fighter within this immigration rights movement. [Of course it does not hurt to know that Ms. Pai also knows the martial arts.] Ms. Pai has wrongfully been accused by pseudo immigration activists and the naive — but we are seeing her on a path to vindication. Pai already has considerable experience working with prosecutors and law enforcement agencies, and she was also one of the first to identify some inconsistencies with regard to the the extreme and radical psuedo immigration movements led by Prerna Lal and Mohammad Abdollahi. She was relentless in saving print screens knowing the likes of Prerna would scrub and/or delete social networking sites to hide what can be perceived as an individual giving unlawful legal advice. And it does not help Ms. Lal’s image when she gives her readers awful advice on ‘fake’ social security numbers.
In the matter of Prerna Lal versus Susan Pai, 2013 CPO 338, I see how Lal abused the court system and the wasting of tax payer dollars on frivolous lawsuits.
In the final ruling of Prerna Lal vs. Susan Pai 2013 CPO338, the Judge stated:
“My ruling is simply that the, both that the actions complained of here do not constitute stalking under the District of Columbia code, and secondly that the, the remedy sought by the petitioner, the only legal and constitutional remedy sought by the petitioner is, does not really relate to the injury that she claims that she suffered, and for those reasons the Court is going to deny the petitioner. All right, Ms. Lal, thank you very much.”
But the frivolous lawsuit(s) and wasted tax payers are something that is already getting too familiar to us. Prerna Lal is one of the pseudo activist leaders who encouraged some in the Dream 9′s publicity stunt to self deport. This wastes more American tax payer dollars when the Dream 9 were admitted into the detention centers in Eloy, Arizona. Additionally, it is clear the asylum hearing process was being abused. DreamActivist.org and NIYA are losing more credibility since many of these leaders are on the record for calling out prison systems who waste tax payer dollars on good immigrants arrested for working at fast food restaurants. DreamActivist.org and NIYA activists can no longer stand on the ‘wasting taxes’ platform since they are essentially wasting tax payer dollars, too, in supporting (not discouraging) others to enlist themselves into our detention and jail systems.
Humanitarian Parole is an exceptional request usually reserved for the most egregious cases (e.g., emergency medical treatment). … If Humanitarian Parole is denied, as was the case with the Dream 9 and the same pattern is followed, the 30 Mexican Nationals in this case are expected to present themselves at the Laredo TX Port of Entry claiming asylum thereby triggering their arrest and detention. They would be interviewed to determine if they have credible fear of returning to Mexico such that they should be allowed to proceed with an asylum hearing in Immigration Court. If not, they would be returned to Mexico. If they pass their credible fear interview, they would be held in detention or released into the U.S. pending an immigration court hearing which could take years to schedule.
It appears this next action also serves to underscore the very real and yet unresolved issue of unaccompanied minors presenting at the border. One of NIYA’s modus operandi is “infiltration of detention centers” and in this case it appears their desire is to infiltrate juvenile detention facilities with the attendant goal of publicizing how unaccompanied minors are often held for months or even a year, pending prosecution, for example, of their criminal human smuggler.
Just the same, Lizbeth Mateo is a member of DreamActivist.org and NIYA. She was part of Round No. 1 via Dream 9, who was eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — an action by the Obama administration to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Yet, Mateo claimed she was too busy to fill out her DACA paperwork — and instead she deported herself to take advantage of the asylum hearing process. As a result, she will be in ‘asylum’ limbo until she receives her day in court. This is unacceptable, and their efforts are a waste of tax payer dollars and it affects real cases of people like Carlos Gutierrez who really do need asylum and safe haven. How can Mateo be too busy to fill out DACA paperwork when she has time for facebook, twitter and other social media means?
Last but certainly not least, Prerna Lal — one of the founders to this pseudo immigrant / DREAMer debacle tried to quash Susan Pai’s freedom of expression that is protected under our First Amendment. I was happy to hear the Courts ruled in favor of protecting our First Amendment and for Pai.
In the Court ruling, the Judge stated:
“The petitioner has engaged in the public discourse made possible by the First Amendment, and has now asked the Court to issue an order to prevent someone else from engaging in exactly those same rights, although in a different way. On a more basic level, having read the exhibits, it appears to me the petitioner has fully participated in public discourse online and in social media, at times using very provocative rhetoric. At times engaging in personal attacks or personal attacks in response herself that included a negative review of the respondent’s business, her law practice placed on yelp, and again done anonymously.”
So why did Ms. Pai attack Prerna Lal’s messaging?
I believe the Judge eloquently stated it when he said:
“She was attacking the messenger in order to undermine the message. She often re-published words that the petitioner had posted that are the respondent claimed to be inflammatory, to be damaging to the movement, to be hypocritical, or otherwise wrong headed including one instance in which she accused the petitioner of giving incorrect and dangerous legal advise.”
Thank you, Ms. Pai, — for helping identify those who are dangerous to the immigration rights movement. We will continue to follow Ms. Prerna Lal — specifically with regard to Prerna Lal helping file an amicus brief with the Ninth Circuit on Cuellar De Osorio v. Mayorkas. Investigative reporters are investigating the LLC it was filed under in light of, Active Dreams, was no longer valid.
It’s unfortunate to hear the likes of Prerna Lal is seeking to be admitted into the California Bar Association, and hopefully they will see a disturbing pattern and question her ethics. As it stands, Prerna is sitting at a score: o – 1. She lost an important battle in attempt to defend herself while claiming the ‘victim card.’ It is my hope that others will not perceive her as a sort of savior because it is clear in the Court ruling she could not save herself.
