21 Savage Arrested by ICE Officials in Atlanta, Faces Possible Deportation

21 Savage is under arrest.

The 26-year-old rapper was picked up by ICE officials in Atlanta, Georgia and taken into custody for possible removal from the United States over the weekend, TMZ reported on Sunday (February 3).

21 reportedly entered the U.S. legally in 2006 from the United Kingdom, but his visa expired. He is now being held for removal proceedings for being in the U.S. illegally and for being a felon after his conviction for drug charges in 2014, according to the report.

“We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph [21] 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,” said his attorney Dina LaPolt.
