21 Savage was taken into ICE custody on Sunday under allegations that he's in the United States unlawfully. The nonimmigrant U-Visa is reserved for people and immediate family members who have "suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity", according to ICE's website. The family then overstayed their work visas.

21 Savage was arrested in Atlanta and detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Sunday as part of an operation targeting his cousin (and fellow Atlanta rapper) Young Nudy.

Mr. Abraham-Joseph was placed into deportation proceedings AFTER his arrest, he was not in deportation proceedings prior to this detention by ICE.

Reports say the agency was aware of his immigration status because he applied for citizenship in 2017.

Atlanta, GA - February 5, 2019 - There has been a great deal of misreporting in the case of She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known professionally as 21 Savage.

Controversial news reporter Tomi Lahren tweeted a sarcastic response to the news.

Demi wrote that she 'wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported'. "I was laughing at who the f- knew 21 was British?"

Lahren responded to Cardi, commenting on the state of the country's immigration system.

As a result of all the online hatred, she deleted her account.

Abraham-Joseph is a role model to young people in the USA, especially in Atlanta, LaPolt said.

"Wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported". Are you Native American?
