Petition to Deport Justin Bieber Hits 100,000, White House Must Reply
Now that he's finished with the State of the Union, President Obama can focus on more important tasks, like the petition to deport the alleged Canadian criminal Justin Bieber.
Following the pop star's arrest for drunk driving and drag racing last week, some concerned patriots started a petition at WhiteHouse.gov requesting that the Canadian be deported. From the petition:
"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. 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 nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
The petition now has more than 100,000 signatures, which means the White House has to issue an official response. That response, though, could take a long time—weeks or even months, according to the Washington Times.
Which means there's still time for Beliebers to sign the petition not to deport Bieber. They're going to need a lot of help, though; at last count that petition had just 1,488 signatures.
