21 Savage has some really serious problems these days and you probably found out what's it all about. His rep has recently addressed the matter in order to shed some light on his situation.

Now, The Shade Room brings more news on the subject.
TSR writes that 'As it turns out, he is a #UK citizen. However, his lawyer claims he applied to for a U visa back in 2017. Many have stepped up to organize support for him, including a group of activists who have put together a petition to stop his deportation.'
The post on the Instagram account of TSR details hat among those groups of activists are '#BlackLivesMatter, #ColorOfChange, #UndocuBlack, #InstaBaji, and #DefineAmerica.'
They say that the petition reads the following: '“The US’ violent history of criminalization Blackness intersects with its deadly legacy of detaining and deporting Black and Brown immigrants. This needs to stop today!'
It seems that there are more than 200,000 needed signatures of supporters who 'demand that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stop the deportation of #SheyaaBinAbrahamJoseph - 21 Savage.'
Someone commented 'We need all this energy for all my Latinos in their actual country because we ain’t do this fight & this ain’t it to all of our children I’m sorry. 😔'
Another follower said that 'People have been protesting immigration reform.. for years.. 🤦🏽♀️ it's not our fault that you didn't pay attention until you read about it happening to a celebrity on a gossip page.'
Someone else doesn't seem too supportive either: 'You guys like he's the only one getting deported. He has enough money to come back.'
A commenter posted this: 'He has a passport too so there for he knew his immigration status. To apply for one, you have to put that down, and the state department verifies and authorizes your passport. He applied in 2017 after his Visa expired. By law, his is to be deported back to his place of birth and wait until they approve or disapprove his Visa. That is the law. He was picked up because of his renewal. The person who was going over it noticed his Visa is expired and had been here illegally since 2006. They did their job and notified ice. The day your Visa expires you have no legal right to be in the USA.'
A person said that 'We got fathers and mothers being deported even now. And we worried about this one dude that none of US will EVER meet. Interesting 🤔'
