In a statement to Facebook, Jay-Z said the arrest was "an absolute travesty", adding that the Grammy-nominated rapper "deserves to be reunited with his children immediately".

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

The rapper's legal team previously clarified that their client was born in London and moved to America when he was 7 years old.

21 Savage reportedly entered the United States legally when he was a minor in July 2005, but he failed to leave under the terms of his visa. Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph's legal status expired through no fault of his own. This is a civil law violation, and the continued detention of Mr. Abraham-Joseph serves no other objective than to unnecessarily punish him and try to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States. "These "Dreamers" come from all walks of life and every ethnicity".

The rapper has admitted ICE is correct in its claims he was born in the United Kingdom, as an obtained birth certificate indicating he was born in London borough Newham showed, but denies the timeline of his immigration that ICE has alleged. In addition to being in violation of federal immigration law, Mr. Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in October 2014 in Fulton County, Georgia.
