Rapper 21 Savage’s lawyer has revealed that she is working to get the Grammy-nominated artist out of a federal immigration detention center.

Earlier today we reported that a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Bryan Cox announced that the rapper, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested in a targeted sting on Sunday in Atlanta.

21 was born in Dominica, which is an island in the Caribbean and known as a U.K. state.

His Lawyer Dina LaPolt said in an email statement that she is actively working with ICE “to clear up any misunderstandings.”

She added that, “We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings,” Dina LaPolt said in a statement to CNN. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in this country, especially in Atlanta, Georgia, and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.”

As we reported, Cox claims that Abraham-Joseph is a British citizen who entered the U.S. legally in July 2005 until he overstayed his visa when it expired in July 2006. Cox says Abraham-Joseph was convicted on felony drug charges in Georgia in October 2014 where nothing was made of his immigration status.

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” ICE said in a statement  to CNN. “ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions.”

21 is allegedly in the process of getting deported back to the UK.
