Azadeh Shahshahani talks about the immigrants' rights and the importance of knowing about them. 

As America continues its discussion on immigration reform and in the wake of Georgia's new "show me your papers" immigration law, it is important for newcomers to America to be aware of their rights. This awareness includes a knowledge of how the law can be used to protect you and how it could be used to prosecute you.

Azadeh Shahshahani, human rights attorney, Huffington Post correspondent, and Director of the National Security/Immigrants' Rights Project at the Georgia ACLU sat down with Sagal Radio intern Mary Claire Kelly to discuss immigrants' rights, new immigration reform, and what rights immigrants can use in certain situations.
