Deport Justin Bieber petition signatures have reached the level necessary for White House consideration. The petition to deport Justin Bieber has over 100,000 signatures, showing that quite a big backlash has occurred after his arrest in Miami. According to a report from Wednesday (Jan. 29) on EW.com, the intent of this movement is to revoke the green card of the pop star.
The Obama administration has set up a site where people can seek to get enough signatures for any proposal to be placed in front of the president. Once enough signatures have been collected on a measure, the White House has stated that it will respond "in a timely fashion" to the issue. This isn't the first time that something in pop culture has come up either, as people have submitted requests for construction of a Death Star and even the cancellation of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
The Deport Justin Bieber petition is still up online and has 110,189 total signatures at the publishing of this article. The test read, "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 nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
While it seems unlikely that President Obama would actually send the pop star back to Canada, the response from the White House is certainly going to garner a lot of attention. There is no set timetable to expect that response, but in the past pop culture petitions have taken about two months to receive acknowledgement. Outside of this public relations problem, the teen star is set to be arraigned on Feb. 14.
