Detention a Surprise
Many of the popular selector’s fans are surprised because he has been traveling to the US for a while and they didn’t think this could happen to him.
However, the ICE website states that persons can be detained by the (DHS) Department of Homeland Security and the enforcement arm (ICE) Immigration and Custom Enforcement.
Persons who arrive at the border without a visa, before they apply for refugee status or asylum, committed a crime, or multiple crimes, an outstanding deportation order on record, either past due or pending, or missed prior immigration hearing dates.
Foota Hype was stripped of his Jamaican status jokingly when he was named among the people who would be given to Barbados when the fun-filled #RihannaIsJamaican hashtag went viral.
