Anaheim attorney on hunger strike, denied entry to Gaza!

Palestinian-American immigration attorney Akram Abusharar of Access California Services, an Anaheim-based social services organization, is currently on vacation in Egypt. Abusharar, a Gaza native, went on hunger strike after Egyptian authorities denied him entry to Gaza to visit family members he hasn't seen in years.
Abusharar, who helps Iraqi, Palestinian, and other refugees/immigrants legalize their status on a daily basis,  only recently became an American citizen after he sued the US Department of Justice for lengthy delays in his naturalization process.
