Justin Bieber is now being confronted with some of the roughest times in his young life as Bieber haters have gathered over 100,000 signatures on a deport Bieber petition. This petition will go the Obama's desk, reports
The Christian Science Monitor on January 29, 2014. The petition requesting the Obama administration to deport Canadian pop star Bieber has passed the 100,000-signature mark which is needed to require a White House response.
It is not likely that 19 year old Bieber will actually be deported, because U.S. federal law dictates that a visa could be revoked or denied for a conviction of a violent crime which has a one year, or longer, prison sentence. After a recent arrest on DUI charges in Miami Bieber told police that he had taken prescription medicine, had been smoking marijuana, and that he had consumed alcohol. If he is convicted, he could face up to six months in jail. However, legal experts say he will likely get off with a lighter sentence because this is his first offense.
The petition seeking deportation of Bieber was launched six days ago and recently had more than 120,000 signatures on the White House Web site, reports The Washington Post. The petition reads, "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." The petition goes on to read, "We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
This is a very sad occurrence for Bieber. He really is a very talented and sensitive guy. Keeping in mind there can of course be great injustices in the American society, just like anyplace else, it appears unless he was actually guilty of a violent crime, he should have his democratic right to decide where he wants to live preserved. This would be a good time for Bieliebers to get far more than 100,000 signatures on a petition requesting that Bieber's legal and human rights be respected.
