(AllHipHop News) She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph is set to be a free man. According to reports, the London-born, Atlanta-raised rapper also known as 21 Savage will be released from immigration detention on $100,000 bond.
Color Of Change released a statement about the development in the #Free21Savage campaign:
We’re glad to see that our collective efforts resulted She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph being released on bond. However, we’re disappointed at the disdain with which ICE treated advocates for She’yaa’s release today in Atlanta. More than 450,000 people signed a petition directed at Atlanta ICE Field Office Director Sean Gallagher, but he refused to meet with us and hear our demands or accept these petitions. She’yaa may be out of ICE custody on bond, but our work is only beginning. We demand that ICE stop any efforts to deport She’yaa. Sadly, his case is just the latest example of how the Trump Administration’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement works with local law enforcement to target Black immigrants. The continued harassment of Black immigrants is a pervasive and under-reported trend. Like so many other immigrants of color targeted by ICE, She’yaa was ripped from his family and his home. We’re fighting for justice for She’yaa and every Black immigrant who is unjustly targeted by the Trump Administration’s deportation machine.
Abraham-Joseph is still facing deportation, but his case may not be resolved for several years. 21's legal team has said he will seek a federal work permit in the meantime.
