21 Savage‘s philanthropic spirit knows no bounds.
A beautiful story awaits below…Array
Savage donated $25,000 to the Southern Poverty Law Centre to help detained immigrants gain access to legal counsel.
Charles H. Kuck, an immigration law attorney broke it down…
21 Savage is making this donation public because everyday 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.
The charitable rapper made the donation after he learned that only one in six immigrants detained in the Southeast has access to an attorney in removal proceedings.
Creating oppressively adverse conditions of detention, like those in Irwin County, Georgia, far away from family and legal counsel, causes despair and hopelessness, and forces these men and women to give up on their immigration claims. The SPLC, through its Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative (SIFI) stands at the front line of this fight and supporting this effort lets all Americans know that the Constitution which protects the least of us, protects all of us.
Good on him.
