The White House Dismisses Justin Bieber Deportation Petition
Mon, 21 Apr 2014 12:09:29
The White House has dismissed a petition calling for the deportation of singer Justin Bieber, which aimed to send him back to has native Canada.
The petition nabbed over 273,000 signatures, asking the government to revoke his green card, saying he is a bad influence after this arrest in Miami in January. He was said to be DUI and drag racing, although both claims have proven to be a bit suspect in light of evidence. He wasn't DUI and the GPS readout suggested he drove a rented Lamborghini really fast, just not at the time in question.
When a petition receives 100,000 or more John Hancocks, staffers are obligated to review it. And review it they did.
A statement was posted on the White House site in regards to this particular petition. It read as follows: "Sorry to disappoint, but we won't be commenting on this one... we'll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber's case, but we're glad you care about immigration issues."
Did or do you want to see The Biebs get deported? Or was this petition a waste of resources?
