Jay-Z joining the fight for 21 Savage's freedom

Jay-Z joining the fight for 21 Savage's freedom

Notably, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), who are now holding Savage, were reportedly also on the scene, but are not listed in the police reports.

"We are not going to stop until he is released, bonded out or in front of a judge", Spiro told TMZ.

According to the ICE, the 26-year-old rapper legally entered the United States from the United Kingdom in 2005 with a temporary nonimmigrant visa but failed to leave when the visa expired the following year.

Spiro also addressed Savage's case and echoed Jay-Z's words.

Law firm Kuck Baxter Immigration released a statement earlier this week saying USA officials have known about Abraham-Joseph's immigration status since at least 2017 when he sought a new visa, and while that application is pending the rapper should not be subject to detainment.

H-4 visas are granted to the children of immigrants who hold H-1B visas, which are given to foreign workers in specialty occupations.

A number of high profile American rap artists have come out in support of 21 Savage's right to stay in the USA, including Cardi B, Metro Boomin, Run The Jewels member Killer Mike, Post Malone and Quavo.

Jay Z caught wind of the rapper's legal issues and called his detention "a complete travesty". Jay Z released a statement on Facebook that said Savage deserved to be reunited with his family immediately.

"Mr. Abraham-Joseph, like nearly two million of his immigrant child peers, was left without immigration status as a young child with no way to fix his immigration status. 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", she said. "Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph lost his legal status through no fault of his own". "These "Dreamers" come from all walks of life and every ethnicity". "ICE provided incorrect information to the press when it claimed he had a criminal conviction".
