The Border Crossing Law Firm is run by Shahid Haque, an immigration attorney and former law professor with over a decade of experience. We believe that no human being is illegal, and we have used our knowledge and experience to help more than two thousand immigrants with applications for green cards, visas, and citizenship. We also vigorously defend immigrants in deportation and removal proceedings, and have represented several hundred clients in Immigration Court. We have won asylum for over twenty refugees who fled from their home countries to escape torture, persecution, and death.

Mr. Haque has advocated for immigrants’ rights by bringing lawsuits in state and federal court to challenge unconstitutional laws and policies that discriminate against immigrants in Montana. He successfully challenged LR-121, an anti-immigrant voter-approved referendum, and thanks to his efforts the law was found unconstitutional. In 2013, he filed a class action lawsuit against the Montana Highway Patrol to challenge its practice of detaining Latino drivers and passengers solely for the purpose of checking into their immigration status.  In 2015, he prevailed with a judgment in his favor

In 2017, Mr. Haque was the recipient of the ACLU’s Jeannette Rankin Civil Liberties Award, in acknowledgement of his service to immigrants in the State of Montana.

Shahid Haque informs Latinos in Montana about their rights if they encounter local police officers who ask about their immigration status, as well as what to expect if you are ever arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") and placed into deportation proceedings.

We have a broad and diverse immigrant population in Montana -- more than most realize. There are a lot of issues that immigrants face in Montana. Shahid Haque has represented over two thousand Montana immigrants and their families, and has significant knowledge about issued and trends facing immigrants in Montana.

In our national debates on immigration reform, we often fail to appreciate how U.S. trade policy impacts immigration. Understanding how trade policies such as NAFTA actually create and drive undocumented immigration is essential to the discussion, and is perhaps the missing link to greater public understanding and appreciation of the need for immigration reform.

On November 13, 2018, Shahid Haque spoke at a panel hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis entitled Immigration: Learning from Community Experience.
On May 9, 2013, Shahid Haque participated in a panel discussion about immigrant victims of domestic abuse and sex trafficking victims in rural Montana. The focus was on the remedies available to these victims, and issues surrounding lawyering and advocating for these groups.
