The immigration authorities tried to "unnecessarily punish" and "scare" 21

Savage to give up his struggle to remain in the United States, his lawyer said Monday because the rapper is facing expulsion and possibly a 10-year ban from the country.

The music, whose real name is She & # 39; yaa bin Abraham-Joseph, "never hid his immigration status" from the US government and has an ongoing U-Visa as a victim of a crime, his lawyer Charles Kuck said in statement Monday afternoon. Abraham-Joseph also has American citizens he supports, which can make him eligible to stay as well, Kuck said.

Abraham-Joseph, 26, was taken into custody on Sunday in the Atlanta area for being declared illegal in the country, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a statement. ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said that Abraham-Joseph was also convicted of incorrect drug charges in October 2014.

ICE said that Abraham-Joseph was an "illegally present United Kingdom" brought to the United States as a child legally in 2005 for a visa that ended one years later in July 2006.
