What 21 Savage's ICE Detainment Says About Immigration in America
By Carolyn Bernucca

As we celebrate the release of 21 Savage on Wednesday, Feb. 13, it is important to remember that he is not unique. Thousands of fathers, mothers, and children are being held in the same conditions, and facing the same hurdles, every single day, without the benefits of international stardom. As reported by CBS News, a study by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) reveals that between October and November of 2018, immigration judges released just 43 percent of undocumented immigrants on bond. Overall in 2018, just 23.5 percent of undocumented immigrants from the United Kingdom, like 21 Savage, were released on bond.
