Bieber Deportation Petition Going to White House, Has Enough Signatures

Any petition that gathers 100,000 signatures within 30 days must be reviewed by the president.

An online petition demanding deportation of Justin Bieber has successfully gathered 100,000 signatures, a figure that obliges the White House to give it a review and issue a response.

The given rule only stands if the 100,000 mark is crossed within 30 days, which is definitely the case as the petition was launched on January 23. At this moment (January 30), over 177,000 signatures have been confirmed.

"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture," the announcement reads. "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."

    Its funny because the Canadians don't want him back either.
    Yeah. You broke him, you bought him.

    I read somewhere that Canada doesn't accept individuals back into the country if they acquire a criminal record and end up getting deported. Apparently since he now has a DUI in the States, they won't take him back even if it's his native country. I could be wrong, but it makes sense.
    Last time i checked he handed himself over to the Toronto police for assault charges on a limo driver so he's definitely allowed back in Canada. Hope this thing fails, nobody wants him back in Canada, hell even the large majority of 12-14 year old girls here have enough brain cells to hate his guts. IMO the courts always take it easy on celebs for the single purpose that if they go to prison or jail they'll get shanked. Absolutely hated the response other celebs had to this, the kid was drunk and high drag racing a lambo, he doesn't need a fine he needs his ass beat.
    I don't think that a country can exile you anymore. I don't think that they can deny you entry to the country which you are a citizen of. Maybe I'm wrong. But still...who would want someone that does all that stuff and is only 19? (Except to collect his taxes)
    Nope, not true. Weve even let Canadian-born Gitmo terrorizers back to serve their prison sentences here. Although for Bieber we may have to make an exception...
    we should incinerate him as an act of kindness to the world from the US and Canada, im sure syria would stop fighting for that exciting news
    Thing is he pays a crapload of taxes and will under no circumstances be deported. Sorry, it makes me sad too.
    Not if he lives in the USA...we don't allow the rich to pay much in taxes...we like the poor ( cause there is no middle class anymore)to shoulder that burden....
    I don't even think the French Canadian's want him back. I sure don't and I don't even live in Canada anymore
    To ammend the song title by Neil Diamond if he does go... *clears throat* He's kicked out of America (they're coming to America is the original song if no one knew)
    If he gets deported, he will no longer be able to tour the US. A criminal record means he'll also have a hard time getting into Europe and Australia. Bye bye Bieber.
    And then we grab popcorn and laugh at all the crying, distraught 13 year old girls.
    All of whom are going to claim that people are "just being mean" to him. Which, of course, will only invoke more collective laughter.
    It wont happen though will it... and either way isn't there something in the US about differing levels of felonys in order to get deported and his are not in the higher bracket? I might be wrong there though I dunno. Still, if it were you or me who did what Bieber did we'd be out in a shot, and that's the real issue (that I'm sure Obama will skirt around as usual).

    Apparently its actually really easy to deport people with a green card. People have been deported for less.
    You can get deported from the US merely for being politically active. I can't go and join a GOP or Dem activist group since I am only a resident. I don't see how he wouldn't get deported if I can't even do that. I hope he gets kicked out though, I think most of the US is fed up with him.
    He won't get deported, most of these petitions are a complete waste of time.
    I wouldn't say that. Whether or not it passes, it's gotten 177,000 signatures in a week. That's a pretty impressive stat and it will always stand against him that the White House had to consider by law the option of deporting him. Politically it's useless. Not gonna happen. But in the world of pop culture where he lives, that's gotta be a blow.
    Australia didn't want him here last year..acted like a right wanker, should have had the shit beaten out of him just on principle.
    Anyone else see the video of him running out of his van acting all tough when a group of guys were talking smack through the window? *PRICELESS*
    Hey, he can tour the 3 venues and dozen-odd ice shanties they have scattered aboot Canada!
    He still has enough money to live a life in leisure, so I don't feel sorry for him. He's a douche, he messed up, now pay the price.
    unfortunately, celebrities rarely pay the same price as us normal folk
    I Finland, the amount you can get fined for simply driving over the speed limit depends on how much your annual income is. I think the highest speeding ticket issued here was around $200,000.
    K-DiDDY they actually care about class there? I told you the US is going downhill...
    Still happens, though. Just look at Danny Trejo and Robert Downey Jr. They did real time in real jail.
    "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture". Well, still clean up to do then...
    Considering he's Canadian, he's not representing us in the USA. Thus, the petition is void.
    His face is in almost every clothing store in the U.S. He may have been born in Canada, but he has made a big impact on popular culture here in the states. I don't think his place of birth nullifies the petition.
    That's the first thing I thought. He doesn't actually represent us in the US, right? He just does a lot of garbage here.
    Don't think that most people even knew he was Canadian until now.
