Petition Calling For Justin Bieber’s Deportation Reaches Threshold for Presidential Consideration
According to Yahoo, the petition to have Justin Bieber deported and have his green card revoked has hit the White House on Wednesday calling for the deportation of the Canadian teen. The online petition has already garnered 103,000 names easily surpassing the threshold of 100,000 signatures required for presidential consideration.
The petition states:
"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."
No comment from the White House has been released on the issue, whose website hosts citizens' petitions on other, more important issues such as the legalization of marijuana. Bieber is understood to be living and working in the United States under a renewable O-1 visa for entertainers, rather than a "green card" that represents permanent resident status.
Out on bail now after being arrested for DUI and street racing, Bieber is due back in Miami for a court appearance on Valentine's Day, even as Los Angeles police pursue their investigation on the earlier incident in which Bieber allegedly hurled eggs at a neighbor's house.

Here's a fun fact : Angry Americans tried to get Piers Morgan deported in 2012 with a similar petition. He's still here.
