Some Americans want Canadian pop-singer Justin Bieber out of the US so badly that they are getting their government involved. A “Deport Justin Bieber” petition has collected over 100, 000 signatures, meaning the Obama Administration must respond.
The petition, submitted six days ago on the White House’s “We The People” website, now has 118,669 (a total by 21:00 GMT) signatures, and the number keeps growing.
“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,” the petition reads.
Non-Beliebers say Canadian pop-singer is “not only threatening the safety” of people in the US “but is also a terrible influence on our nation’s youth.”
The threshold of at least 100,000 signatories triggers a required response from President Obama, though the White House does not give itself a limit to address petitions. So, it may take weeks, months or even years before the Administration gets around to it. Generally, the administration responds to petitions that surpass the threshold within 30 days.
