Tragic Details About Justin Bieber

Following Justin Bieber’s Miami arrest, the Internet was ablaze with all things Bieber. While intense backlash for his questionable behavior is expected, a call for his deportation seems a bit dramatic. Nearly 300,000 people disagreed, however, as a White House petition was started amidst the controversy calling for his return back to Canada. “We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” listed the petition’s description. “We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked.”

However, according to immigration attorney Ira Kurzban, the singer is “not subject to deportation because of a DUI offense, nor is driving with an expired license a deportable offense.” The White House is required to respond to petitions that garner over 100,000 signatures, and the call for Bieber’s deportation went well past that mark achieving over 275,000 signatures. Nonetheless, the White House wasn’t amused. “Thanks for your petition and your participation in We the People,” their statement read. “Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one.” 

The White House did, however, poke fun at the request, ending their statement by writing: “So we’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues.”
