Online petition to deport Justin Bieber reaches the necessary 100,000 signatures to reach White House.
By now, most of us are aware of Justin Bieber's recent antics. From egging his neighbor's home to getting a D.U.I. in his yellow Lambo, the Biebs has been runnin "wild" in these streets. Justin has caused such a stir lately that people are no longer sitting back and watching it happen. There is an online petition going around right now to deport Justin Bieber back to his home country of Canada. It’s so serious, that the White House must issue a statement regarding the matter, according to the rules.
The online petition, titled "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card," was created less than a week ago and has already surpassed the 100,000 required signatures long before the 30 day deadline for the "We the People" petition program. The program states that by the White House rules, any petition receiving 100,000 signatures must issue a response from them.
The petition reads something like this:
"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture," the petition states. "We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
As of 9 P.M. tonight, the online petition has over 160K signatures.
Experts say not to expect a statement from the White House any time soon however. A facetious pop-star petition isn’t exactly a top priority for the White House.
Let it be known, DUIs and drag-racing aren't deportable offenses. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, immigration visas can only be revoked in the event of a violent crime or a prison sentence that exceeds one year; Bieber faces many potential consequences, but if he is sentenced to prison, he'd only get up to six months for drag racing and up to six months for the DUI. So basically, it doesn't hurt to voice your opinion, but it probably won't get him kicked out of the U.S.
