The White House probably won’t be deporting Canadian twerp Justin Bieber.
In a response to the online petition, “Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card,” the White House said it “won’t be commenting on this one.”
The White House is supposed to respond to any “We The People” petition that gets more than 100,000 signatures, but according to the fine print, they can opt out.
This is the message that is currently on the deport Bieber petition, which has over 270,000 signatures:
Thanks for your petition and your participation in We the People.
Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one.
The We the People terms of participation state that, “to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition.”
So we’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows.
The response then goes on to outline President Barack Obama’s immigration reform plan, which unfortunately does not include kicking Bieber out of this country forever.
