President Obama Will Be Forced to Make a Statement on Deporting Justin Bieber
Sure, the State of the Union may have been yesterday, but the speech Washington is really waiting for is President Obama‘s upcoming statement regarding Justin Bieber‘s immigration status. The President will be forced to make a statement about whether or not Bieber, who is Canadian, will be deported, after a petition calling on the government to do so reached 100,000 signatures in just six days.
“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” reads the petition. “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.”
The petition is hosted on the White House’s We The People citizen portal; it is the policy of the Obama administration to respond to all petitions that reach 100,000 signatures in 30 days. This is not the first unusual petition Obama has been forced to respond to, recently the President released a statement regarding a petition to “cut” Jimmy Kimmel Live.
With petitions like these, the administration typically waits until the weekend to release a response.
