21 Savage believes his arrest by ICE may be motivated by revenge because his new music condemns the behavior of immigration officials.
21's people released a statement, claiming ICE’s motives are corrupt:
”Many have speculated as to possible ulterior motives for his arrest and detention, including that he released music five days prior to his arrest by ICE, which included new lyrics condemning the behavior of immigration officials for their detention of children at the border."
The statement also says ICE knew how to find 21 Savage back 2017, when he applied for a U-Visa and gave his address. But they didn't arrest him until they heard the new song.
21 Savage was picked up by ICE early Sunday morning in Atlanta and taken into custody for possible removal from the U.S. An ICE agent claimed 21 has been living a false public persona and had overstayed his visa.
