21 Savage Arrested By ICE In Atlanta

Fox 5 Atlanta News is reporting that 21 Savage was arrested this weekend in Atlanta and he’s been taken into custody by ICE with the intent for possible removal from the U.S. 

The rapper born as Shayaa Bin Abraham, is reportedly being held for removal proceedings- for being in the country illegally, since his 2005 visa is expired and for being a felon, due to a 2014 drug charge conviction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The 26-year-old is a British National who arrived in America at the age of 14.

ICE released the following statement:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA “21 Savage” during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta. Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon.

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph initially entered the U.S. legally in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa and he became unlawfully present in the U.S. when his visa expired in July 2006. In addition to being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia.

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts. ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.”
