White House may respond to Justin Bieber deportation petition with 120k signatures
A petition asking the U.S. Government to deport Canadian singer Justin Bieber has topped 100,000 signatures on the WhiteHouse.gov website, meaning the request will get an official response from the Obama administration.
The petition, created six days ago, has amassed over 120,000 signatures as of 4 p.m. Wednesday.
“Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card,” the petition states.
“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.”
On all petitions, “We the People” states, “If a petition meets the signature threshold [in this case, 100,000], it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response.”
A petition asking the Obama administration not to deport Bieber has 1,500 signatures as of 4 p.m. Wednesday.
