21 Savage is a free man!
After spending 9 days in ICE detention, rapper 21 Savage has been released on bond, the day before Valentine’s Day. Even though he is out, the rapper still faces deportation.
Savage was arrested on Feb. 3rd, after which we learned he was in fact born in London and came to the U.S. when he was 7 years old in 2005. In 2006, his visa expired and he’s been living in the U.S. illegally ever since. In 2017, Savage applied for a U-Visa. When running his background, his 2014 felony conviction appeared, which may be what triggered this detainment. ICE says Savage’s previous felony is what could lead to his deportation. Even thought the criminal act has been expunged from his record, it appears they still view him as a convicted felon.
