OCILLA, Ga. – Rapper named Grammy 21 Savage released Wednesday from an immigration detention center in southern Georgia, whose lawyers said.
The rapper, whose name is Mrs. Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, is a $ 100,000 bond, the immigration lawyer, Tia Smith, said in an email. It was held in the Irwin County Retention Center in Ocilla.
Abraham-Joseph was arrested early in February 3 in a targeted action, said President of Immigration and Customs. Immigration judge says Tuesday to him.
ICE stated that the British citizen expired his visa and conviction was concealed in October 2014 in Fulton County.
His lawyers said that the rapper was 26 years of age of the US when he was 7 and his legal status expired in 2006 with no fault of his own. They said he has been convicted, and immigration attorney Charles Kuck said ICE's lawyers refused for this claim during the Tuesday hearing.
The ICE spokesman, Bryan Cox, said Wednesday that he had no additional comment.
Abraham-Joseph applied for a new Visa in 2017, and that case is pending, Kuck said.
"If the normal system continues, it can go for two or three years," Kuck said, adding that, meanwhile, "he gets his life back."
