Rapper 21 Savage arrested in US due to being UK citizen

Cardi B shut down Tomi Lahren after the Fox Nation host mocked 21 Savage over his current immigration case.

Lahren responded to the news that 21 Savage is facing deportation by US immigration authorities following the revelation that he is, reportedly, a UK national whose US visa expired back in 2006, when he was 13.

“I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya,” Lahren tweeted, in reference to Savage’s track “Bank Account” from his 2017 debut Issa Album.

Many critics pointed out Lahren’s joke was ironic considering she appears to be a fan of the rapper.

“Groupie you were looking for backstage passes 2 days ago,” actor Michael Rapaport responded.

Cardi B later tweeted: “Don’t make me get my leash.” Her comment referenced back to another feud with Lahren over the US government shutdown, where she threatened to “dog walk” Lahren for making disparaging comments about her political stance.

According to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 21 Savage is a British citizen who entered the US legally in 2005, but overstayed his visa, which expired in 2006.

He has been placed in deportation proceedings in federal immigration court, a spokesperson said. His attorney is working to “clear up any misunderstanding”.
