Susanne Gad is a renowned advocate for vulnerable and marginalized groups. After a successful, decade-long career as an attorney for the United Nations, Susanne's sister decided to join forces with her sister Sarah and crusade for justice. Susanne is among the most sought-after immigration advocates in the country due to her exceptional track record of success when it comes to asylum status, identifying paths to citizenship, and appealing cases lost by other immigration and human rights attorneys. In fact, a large number of Susanne's immigration clients turned to her in order to fix mistakes caused by their previous immigration attorneys. Through her tireless advocacy and indefatigable work ethic, Susanne has compiled a long list of victories and earned the respect of immigration attorneys and adjudicators alike. Many of her former clients remain in touch with her years after the conclusion of their legal matters.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Permit to carry while living in a school zone. How may I exit my property without breaking the law?
A: I agree with Sarah's answer. You can exit your property safely by keeping the firearm unloaded and locked inside a firearms rack inside your vehicle while you are still within 1,000 feet proximity of the school. You can also carry the firearm within 1,000 feet of a public school as long as the property your are on is private property. The keyword is "private." As a general rule, Federal law does not apply to activity that takes place on private property.

You can find additional guidance on local gun laws here: "Firearms in Minnesota:

Prohibited Locations" <>.
Q. can someone be deported if they are convicted of shoplifting? the person has no other convictions.
A: It will not affect their green card unless they have other prior convictions of theft or those that evince bad character or moral turpitude. This alone probably won't because of a rule called the "Petty Theft Exception," which is exactly what it sounds like: a one-time exception to the rule against deportable offenses when that who commits a single act of low-grade theft during their time in the United States. Deportable offenses drastically vary between jurisdictions and are often arbitrarily applied, but as a general rule, it is a good idea to remain lawful if a person wishes to remain a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
