21 Savage Arrested By ICE And Could Be Deported; Found To Be In US Illegally As He Came From U.K Country And Visa Expired In 2006
21 Savage looks like he could be deported soon as according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ICE arrested him in Atlanta this morning. He’s supposedly actually from England.
21 came to the United States in 2005 and continued to stay here after his visa expired in July 2006. The process has already begun to get him deported. Authorities are getting him for being here illegally and for being a felon.
21’s attorney Dina LaPolt said to TMZ that he’s working with authorities to get him out. He says it’s simply a misunderstanding.
“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.”
21 is in ICE custody now. They’ll wait for the outcome of the case before a judge makes any decisions. The U.K national country that he’s rumored to be from is Dominica but is stated to be England.
