Why ICE may deport 21 Savage to the UK
So you have heard that 26 year old rapper, 21 Savage was arrested over the weekend by ICE officials and is now facing possible deportation to the UK.
TMZ reports 21 Savage was taken into custody for possible removal from the United States because he entered the U.S. legally in 2006 from the United Kingdom, but his visa expired.
There are also reports that 21 Savage is now being held for removal proceedings for being in the U.S. illegally and for being a felon after his conviction for drug charges in 2014.
However, his attorney Dina LaPolt released a statement saying: “We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding. Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in the country — especially in Atlanta, Georgia and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”
