Less than two weeks after his arrest by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and just days after being released on bond, Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage spoke to ABC’s Good Morning America about his ordeal and immigration policy in the U.S.
“I don’t think the policy is broken, I feel like the way they enforce the policy is broken,” the rapper explained. “I’ve been here…19 years, this is all I know. I don’t feel like you should be arrested and put in a place where a murderer would be, for just being in the country too long.”
Savage, whose full name is She’yaa bin Abraham-Joseph, is a British citizen. He was arrested on Feb. 3 for reportedly overstaying a 2005 visa.
“I didn’t even know what a visa was,” Savage explained. “I was 7 when I first came here. I knew I wasn’t born here, but I didn’t know what that meant as far as when I transitioned into an adult, how it was going to affect my life.”
