Savage Released On Bond Following ICE Arrest

21 Savage released from ICE detention

Rapper 21 Savage was released from ICE detention on Tuesday

Last week, USA rapper Jay-Z said 21 Savage's arrest was "an absolute travesty" and hired Mr Spiro to help with his fight against deportation.

On Tuesday, attorneys Charles Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro said in a statement that they had been in talks with ICE officials to "clarify" the rapper's legal standing and his eligibility for bond.

It has been over a week since the artist, née She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for being an "unlawfully present United Kingdom national".

Despite all the attention over the past nine days, Abraham-Joseph's detention was barely addressed during the Grammy Awards this past Sunday, where he had been expected to perform.

Abraham-Joseph was nominated for two awards at the Grammys, including record of the year for "Rockstar" alongside Post Malone.

21 Savage's latest album I Am I Was spent weeks at No. 1 a the start of the year. He was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia, ICE said.

Abraham-Joseph's lawyers disputed that. In a subsequent statement, an ICE spokesperson alleged 21 Savage to be a "United Kingdom national" who "initially entered the US legally in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa".

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph has been continuously physically present in the United States for nearly 20 years, except for a brief visit overseas", his lawyers said. He legally returned in July 2005 but lost his legal immigration status as a teen in 2006. "In an interview last week, Leena Khandwala, a supervising attorney for the Legal Aid Society's immigration unit, told NPR that "[U visas] are vastly oversubscribed - under current projections, a U visa may not be available for a decade or more".

"21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters", it adds, "[he] is grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music". "And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them".
