Rapper held for alleged immigration violations

Miami, and Florida in general, is an area with many immigrants. These immigrants are important members of our society, serving in many roles. They have jobs, are students and contribute culturally to our economy. But, immigrants need to be sure that they comply with applicable laws. Recently, a rapper was taken into custody for immigration violations.

Rapper "21 Savage," a Grammy-nominated artist, was recently taken into custody by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE alleges that the rapper, who is from the U.K., entered the U.S. on a one year visa in 2005 and has overstayed his visa. He is not eligible for DACA because he dropped out of high school and has a criminal record. His attorney says that his client has never hid his immigration status and has applied for a U visa, which is for those who are victims of a crime. His attorney also says he is being held under incorrect information regarding criminal charges in the past. He also has American-born children, which can help his immigration status. If he is deported, he will be banned from the U.S. for 10 years.

U.S. immigration matters can be tricky. Those who are in the U.S. from another country should understand their options when it comes to visas, immigration, family matters and staying in the U.S. Being deported can be devastating for an immigrant. It is important to research options that may be available. The immigration laws in the U.S. can be complicated, so getting the right information is crucial.
