Fans had been thrown for a loop this week when the headlines broke — 21 Savage Arrested by ICE, May Be Deported.
The so-thought Atlanta rapper was focused by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and brought into custody earlier this week. 21 Savage, actual title Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is definitely a U.Okay. citizen in accordance with ICE. He has been staying within the states on a visa that expired again in 2005.
There’s way more to the story than preliminary experiences…

21 Savage will not be being deported with no combat. A petition began up by Black Lives Matter organizers seeks to maintain 21 Savage in his dwelling, right here within the U.S.
“The circumstances of Mr. Abraham-Joseph’s detention stand as a testament to the consistent and historically under-reported harassment and targeting of Black immigrants,” the petition reads. “The US’ violent history of criminalizing Blackness intersects with its deadly legacy of detaining and deporting Black and Brown immigrants.”
So far, the petition has acquired 189,054 of 200,000 signatures.
