#21SAVAGE UPDATE: My biggest question in this case is answered.

ICE knowingly allowed the public to believe that 21 was a convicted felon through an intentional half-truth. He *was* convicted in 2014. Per Alex Spiro, that conviction was vacated (not expunged). No felonies
I am comfortable calling this a lie. ICE lied, and with clear intent to cloud the news cycle and shift the burden of proof to a father of 3 US citizens who has given back to his community many times over to justify his own existence.

It's appalling. I'm appalled.

I've seen them do this to ordinary people who will never make the news, and that's bad enough. But to play it this way with #21Savage, an internationally-known celebrity who may go down as the single most famous undocumented American to this point in history seems... actionable.

Congrats to @TMZ for being the only media outlet (that I've seen) to correctly note that "expungement" of #21Savage's drug case is meaningless for ICE enforcement and immigration law generally. Sorry to be that guy, but it's a really important part of the story #Free21Savage
To be clear: this is bad. It's very bad. The way our immigration system treats drug cases (from possession to trafficking) is not just an injustice but an indecency. But if anything what ICE is doing to #21Savage is a chance to tell *that* story.
VERY IMPORTANT: Only going by public statements here made by prior criminal defense and (very good) current immigration counsel, both of whom have used the word "expunged." Absolutely ready (and happy) to be wrong if it has actually been vacated on legal/Constitutional grounds

1/ "How many lawyers you got?"

I hope he's got a good one on call, but in the meantime this one is here to explain a few things about what we know about his immigration situation and where his case is likely headed

2/ First: It does seem to be confirmed that #21Savage was born in the Caribbean nation of Dominica, a "Commonwealth" country with remaining ties to the UK which entitle certain citizens to British passports.

3/ ICE claims that #21Savage overstayed his visa and has no lawful immigration status.

Let's say just for purposes of this thread they're correct. This would be very, very bad for him.

So I just saw @21savage and @DaRealAmberRose at @Target like it was nothing... #Thread
My first instinct was to try to sneak a picture in but I mean Target... They probably don't want to be bothered.
They were just chilling like a regular couple. They probably get bothered all the time!
