21 savage was arrested by ICE Sunday morning.
21 Savage, who claimed to be from Atlanta, was arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Atlanta Sunday morning.
His reps and officials have confirmed that he was arrested and set to be deported.
21 Savage, real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is a UK national, a British man.
He entered the country in 2005 with his visa, and stayed here illegally until now, while his visa expired in 2006.
It’s reported that 21 Savage is being held for removal proceedings, for being in the country illegally and for being a felon. He was convicted of drug charges in 2014.
21 Savage’s attorney told news sources:
“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.”
