21 Savage Donates $25,000 to Help Detained Immigrants Fight Their Cases

The Grammy-nominated rapper donated $25,000 to the Southern Poverty Law Center after the watchdog organization called for his freedom after immigration officials arrested him in February.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, is an Alabama-based nonprofit that specializes in immigration detention and civil rights.

The donation from 21 Savage—real name She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, will help immigrants being held in detention centers in the Deep South obtain legal counsel.

In an interview after his release from a 10-day stint in a Georgia detention facility, 21 Savage criticized ICE for what he called a “broken” way of enforcing immigration policies and promised those still detained he’d do “everything in his power to try and bring awareness to [their] pain.”
