How To Stop The Deportation Of 21 Savage #Free21Savage

On Sunday (Feb. 3rd) 21 Savage (She'ya Bin Abraham-Joseph) was arrested and detained by ICE, who claimed that the rapper is actually from the United Kingdom and has overstayed his welcome here in the U.S.

According to the U.K. publication The DailyMail Online, 21 Savage was born in Newham, London and had came to the U.S. when he was 12 years old along with his mother. He and his mother moved to Atlanta which we thought was his home in 2005. After being in the U.S. for a year the artist's visa expired and he never renewed it.

Despite being labeled an "illegal immigrant" friends of his such as DJ Khaled are in full support. DJ Khaled took to Instgram and posted a picture of himself and 21 Savage with a caption that reads, "He is a father, my friend, and a great person who gives back to his community."

According to RollingStone Magazine in response to the arrest Black Lives Matter has released a petition to stop the rapper from being deported. In support of the rapper many people have already signed the petition.
