Rep Hank Johnson Says ICE ‘Terrorizes’ Communities In America

Georgia Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson criticized Immigrations Customs Enforcement (ICE) for “terrorizing” communities in the U.S. after a famous rapper who lived in Atlanta was arrested by ICE for being an illegal immigrant.

Johnson was asked by TMZ about the rapper, 21 savage, and his arrest Tuesday, in which he advocated for the rappers release, saying ICE purposely arrested him during the weekend of the super bowl “to send a message to the people in the music business to keep ‘your mouth shut’ about what’s going on at the southern border. I felt like I needed to speak out on it.”

“ICE is becoming an agency that terrorizes certain communities. It is misusing its power and I believed it needs to be reined in,” Johnson continued.

“You’re saying that 21 should be let out?,” TMZ asked

Johnson responded, “Yes. He should be let out on bond so that his u-visa application can continue to proceed. And so that ICE authorities can get their facts straight because they think he is a convicted felon but he is not.”

The comments come as many Democrats have called for the abolishment of ICE, in regards to President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy. There have been protests throughout the U.S. including in Washington, D.C., and various parts of California, filled with groups of people all for abolishing the government agency.

Johnson’s office did not immediately respond for comment when contacted by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

  1. Dithering Hank Johnson should stick to his Geological Studies; and his claim that (p/p) “… more American Military [sic][&/or it`s] Equipment placed on this Island of Guam might cause it to flip over”,…… Well, Hank, Maybe putting Hundreds/Thousands/Millions More illegals in the USA Could also cause the USA to flip over…… but not in the way your cabbage works.

  2. This might be a shock to somebody somewhere, but ol’ Ben “Guam gonna tip over and sink” Johnson is wrong. She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, now known as 21 Savage, was convicted of felony drug charges in Fulton County, Georgia in 2014, so yes he is a convicted felon. He also took $17,000 from a night club owner in 2016 to perform but never showed up. After repeated attempts to get his money back, the night club owner signed a complaint against She’yaa. Based on the dollar amount a warrant for Felony Theft was issued. This is the charge he is currently facing, after being released from ICE on bond, which is standard procedure and exactly what Johnson was demanding.

    Thankfully, this tremendous contributor to America is now free to address his various legal issues and charges.
