Petition to deport Justin Bieber hits 100,000 signatures; White House must respond

(WXYZ) - Justin Bieber's recent antics, which include an arrest for drunk driving and drag racing last week, and an expected assault charge for an attack on a limo driver in December, have led thousands of Americans to take action.

Right now, more than 175,000 signatures support a petition on WhiteHouse.gov requesting that the alleged Canadian criminal be deported. From the petition:

"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 nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."

The petition was started by some concerned patriots last week following the pop star's arrest for drunk driving and drag racing in south Florida.

Because the petition has more than 100,000 signatures, the White House has to issue an official response.

But don't expect that response to come quickly. According to the Washington Times, it could take weeks, or even months, before the White House addresses the petition.

The delay will only help a band of 'Beliebers' looking to help the 19-year-old keep his green card. 

A petition not to deport Bieber is already posted on the WhiteHouse.gov site. That petition, however, needs a lot of help. At last count, the petition not to deport Bieber had just 2,861 signatures.
