A rapper with conscious lyrics is a special talent, but making conscious efforts to help others is the most inspiring action a celebrity can make. 21 Savage continues his efforts as an advocate for immigrants with a 25,000-dollar donation to the Southern Law Poverty Center. The purpose of the donation is to help detained immigrants in the South receive legal counsel and aid.

Donation

21 Savage’s immigration lawyer, Charles Kuck, presents $25,000 donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The SPLC informs that “Immigration enforcement is frequent, overly aggressive and often violates both citizens’ and noncitizens’ constitutional rights. Detention centers operate with minimal public scrutiny and few resources. Surrounding communities lack legal organizations that can support or provide any services to detainees.”

 In a statement, the artist’s immigration lawyer, Charles Kuck said, “21 Savage is making this donation public because every day Americans need to know that ICE is using civil immigration detention as a weapon against immigrants, many of whom, like 21 Savage, have relief from deportation and are able to fix their immigration status.”
Born in Great Britain, 21 Savage, real name She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, has been living in the United States ever since he was seven. On February 3rd of this year 21 Savage was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement during a targeted operation(ICE) on claims that he was illegally staying in the U.S. due to his VISA expiring. Rappers, celebrities, and organizations supported Savage during the time he was detained. The SLPC was one of the nonprofit organizations that was an advocate for 21 Savage.
