21 Savage

Rapper 21 Savage spent 10 days in the country's worst immigration detention center under President Trump's revised immigration policy.

The 26-year-old rapper, who was born in London, England, was arrested on February 3 and held without bond for overstaying his expired immigration visa. He was released from a southern Georgia prison on Wednesday, and he flew home to Atlanta on a private jet.

According to TMZ, the decision to arrest and deport 21 Savage was made months ago by the Atlanta bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Rap titan Jay-Z hired a top immigration lawyer to fight for the rapper's rights to stay in America. But 21 may be forced to return to the U.K. as a result of President Trump's revised immigration policy.

ICE agents believed 21 had a felony conviction, which would have disqualified him from being able to post bond.

But it was later discovered that court records showing his 2014 drug conviction was vacated had not been updated in ICE's computers.

The UK rapper filed for a U visa in 2017, which means he has another 2 years to wait for approval.

Under previous legislation, the rapper, who was born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, would have been allowed to stay in the country until his application for a U visa had been processed.

However, Trump's revised immigration policy recommends deporting people who have a pending visa application. They are only allowed to return if and when the visa is approved.

He now faces a lengthy deportation hearing, after which it will be decided whether he can remain and work in the U.S.

Prior to his release, ICE agents told him they would drop deportation proceedings if he voluntarily left the country, but he declined.

The pressure is on the troubled rapper to stay out of trouble until his deportation hearing.

    How the fukk does this happen

  • Applebootay

    ALL RIGHT ALREADY!

  • Queen B

    Leave this niqqa alone....if Trump's revised policy was after he applied for the visa in 2017 then won't he be allowed to stay

  • Goodii2Shoes

    they aint keep/deport his a** or the 19 illegals he call relatives so he needs to revise it again.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    america. the white people were told by the tribal leaders they can't document all these people...they didnt listen&went inviting/trafficking more!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    *psa*: white people have officially stated that had they known what was going to happen, they would have picked their own damn cotton.

    (which is what we expected them to do. ,,we all know what they did & we've spent generations undoing!)

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Easy! That is why this country is FILLED with criminals! Outdated sustems, Lazy a$$ court personnel not doing their job etc...
    Why is it that murderers get bond in Fulton County GA but not folks who get caught with weed?

  • Goodii2Shoes

    a white man killed 3 people including a child, savagely, got 30 years. a corrupt, underfunded drug task force in IL was eventually disbanded & the "agents" charged w/ drug crimes themselves after framing a melanated male & sentencing HIM to 40 years. #FreeKen

    Where can black American folks move to illegally and not get booted out without papers?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He talked noise about ICE so no.
    You know how petty and vindictive Trump is.

  • Gloria

    OT: R KELLY allegedly has a new sex tape out where he is having sex with a 14 year old girl. ?? currently waiting to hear more about this....

  • Marlika

    I can’t imagine being raised in a somewhere, getting adjusted then being torn away like it’s nothing. Must be a horrible feeling. ?????

  • Ms Thang

    Can we please get a R Kelly post. There’s a new tape that’s been passed on to authorities.

  • KLove

    He better keep his nose clean...i actually like some of his music lol

  • Goodii2Shoes

    ghana is initiating a return to africa, expatriation program.. started 2018.

  • Dun Dilly

    Get your PAPERS right, and you won't NEED to blame Chief CHEETO for any immigration laws. That's like nikkas calling cops racists for having their car IMPOUNDED, yet they're the ones driving Uninsured and Unregistered w a SUSPENDED license.

  • Queen B

    Yea but he has valid reasons to b here so either way he'll stay

  • Trace da Ace

    i started to watch this...but then saw it was 1 hour and 45 min......but I get the point. ;)

  • tintin

    people here in Canada came when they was 2 months old and getting their butts deported to a country they've never known. these damn boys need to behave themselves.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Ice please focus on the illegal Mexican and Central Americans who are mooching off of American benefits (welfare, foodstamps etc) and then have the nerve to not speak or try to learn English. This is coming from me, a Trump supporter.. I also happen to be a 21 Fan

  • Li-Wright

    TMZ is reporting that he was "deported temporarily"...whatever that means. Maybe he's deported and can reapply?

  • ALLMINE?

    Where? A first world nation?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    As i stated there is nothing right about the Trump Administration.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Details!!! Is the girl underage? Meaning under the legal age of consent, how old is this tape?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Never mind just scrolled down and saw the answer thanks

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Ohhh shoot cuz I wondered where all his tapes went to

  • morenYAHdelsur

    White Americans are the REAL BRITS ?? ain’t that a bish.

  • Yup, I said it

    Those U visas are what a lot of those foreign bride apply for. They will get married to an American and claim spousal abuse and then get a VISA. They be wearing them U Visas out

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    One thing I learned you don’t want to get caught up in the system for nothing !! Not even a ticket cause that stuff don’t get handled properly either I know someone had a ticket went to court paid the fees and the fines later they got pulled over was told they going to jail cuz they license was revoked they explained that couldn’t be possible long story short and a bing payment later the courts didn’t notify the dmv that the charges were reduced and some dismissed and fees and fine had been paid. This has happened to a lot of ppl so now this particular county gives you a print out to keep corn your records of what happened so you can take it to the dmv yourself. The court system and some data basis don’t communicate with each other or it’s a back log that takes months or years for someone to enter stuff in

  • Ms Thang

    Allegedly she’s 14. T M Z and cnn is reporting it.

  • Nathan Hastings

    ICE sure aren't arresting these Mexicans here in California especially in Los Angeles.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Right, listen in car driving/whenever you have time.

    With the cooperation and blessing of Black Extremist Liberal Leadership the 2020 census will change the way blacks will be identified and immigration polices have been put in place so that by 2050 there will almost be the same amount of Black immigrants as Native Blacks (DOS - descendants of slaves) in this country. The current black narrative will no longer be relevant. Currently, the majority of black students in Ivy League and other prestigious colleges (highest paid/future leaders and spokespeople for blacks) are black immigrants or their children. The problem is these highly educated blacks (who got into those schools/received benefits because of and by being grouped with Native Blacks) REJECT being labeled/identified and associated with Native blacks. Black immigrants are doing exactly what Latinos have done with the so called black and Brown alliance. Use OUR struggle and big demographic to advance their cause, their agenda, their plight. Eventually the black immigrants are going to start kicking blacks out of THEIR community (which were once Native Black communities) when they don' t need blacks anymore the same as the Latinos have already done.

    Canada could give 0 effs . When your time is up it's up and you have to go. My friend thought she was gonna claim refugee status when she went to there because she is Ethiopian. They flewet her behind right back to South Africa where they last stamped her passport. She was there had her baby but they recently stopped give anchor babies papers

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Right this is good to listen to while driving or you have some free time.

    Right thee worst!!!

  • Logan Roberts

    God will humble you quick.

    Knew someone that went through a deportation hearing it was no fun but the chances of winning are more likely than you think. His best relief is to apply for a cancellation of removal claiming he has US born children that rely on him but to claim that you must not have committed any crimes...... You also have to prove you were a model “citizen” and be of good moral character. Hopefully it will work out for him, looks like he has hired a heavy duty immigration lawyer, so we will see.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    lol lmk what u come up with. Ghana (west africa) stated it wanted 2 welcome people there &other parts of africa would like to make amends for the slave trade & vow to never let it happen again. also, africa is more 1st world/metropolitan than people think due to western tv; but black americans could go& build it up.
    ... other than that, .....

  • ALLMINE?

    I'll pass. America is my home.. I'm looking for a country with the same benefits these Africans get when they come here.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    lol. enjoy! & from what the africans tell me,aside from free reign to engage in additional criminal activity (*gun violence, drugs, financial crimes)& become labor slaves,,,they'd rather be in africa

  • ALLMINE?

    They should've stayed in Africa then..

  • Jussjess25

    That wont matter.. trump doesn't care about anchor babies. ?

  • tintin

    Yep i had a friend do they same thing she thought a Canadian baby would save her. Canada told her take her baby or put it in foster care. She's in jamaica dying to come back

  • tintin

    Exactly

  • Realnigga101

    Damn!
    I thought Canada welcomed immigrants.

  • tintin

    they welcome immigrants as long as it's done right. you can't file a refugee stating you witnessed a crime, that's a bull refugee story.

  • Kayke

    Or a lot of foreign brides are abused, some are even killed. They marry an American, especially yt, and they get treated like property. Not saying there aren’t scammers, but there is a reason why some of those men specifically go for a foreign person whose independence will not be available or granted for a period of time.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I regularly have had to wonder wth are African people willingly immigrating to the US for? I started asking them, some have told me their country is at war, so it was asylum but too many told me they were fed some propaganda about "getting a good job, good college education, nice housing; only to get here & realize it was lies".. thus they rob/deal etc & feel 0 remorse; only miss Africa & go home/bring family over as often as they can...
