Rapper 21 Savage was arrested by United States Customs and ICE agents on Sunday morning in Atlanta.
“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,” ICE spokesman Brian Cox told the AJC. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon.” Savage was convicted of felony drug charges in 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia.
The social media universe of liberals was in an outrage over the arrest. Let’s get something straight puppets, when you’re not a United States citizen, and you have a Felony, you get deported. That’s how this game works.
21 Savage is nominated for two 2019 Grammy Awards for his work as a featured artist on Post Malone’s song “Rockstar”; the awards ceremony takes place next Sunday. He released his debut, “The Slaughter Tape” mixtape, in 2015 and signed with Epic Records. His most recent album, “I Am > I Was,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
The rapper’s attorney, Dina LaPolt, told Variety: “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.”
I mean, with a statement like this and his amazing track record, who wouldn’t believe this? Apparently no one, including United States Customs and ICE Agents. If you break the laws of America, you should be sent packing, plain and simple.
