21 was arrested in Atlanta this morning (February 3), by Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE, as it is better known, in a targeted sting. They claim he is not a U.S. citizen and has over-stayed his visa, according to EastTexasMatters.com! A spokesman for Ice says that 21 is actually a citizen of the U.K. They say he came here legally as a teen and has stayed past the expiration of his visa, which expired in July of 2006. His real name is Shayaabin Abraham-Joseph.
"Mr. Abraham-Joseph is presently in ICE custody in Georgia and has been placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts. ICE will now await the outcome of his case before a federal immigration judge to determine future actions."

21's lawyer issued a statement as well:
"We are working diligently to get Mr. Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with the authorities to clear up any misunderstandings. "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." ~ Dina LaPolt said in a statement to CNN.
