21 Savage's attorney Charles H. Kuck has issued a statement, telling The Fader: 'As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like almost two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own.'

'This is a civil law violation, and the continued detention of Mr. Abraham-Joseph serves no other purpose than to unnecessarily punish him and try to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States.'
