The White House has finally responded to the petition asking for Justin Bieber to be deported and his green card revoked.
As ENTmania! reported, a petition was set up against Bieber at the official White House petitions website We the People shortly after he was arrested for DUI in Miami, demanding that the singer be deported because his partying, drug abusing and violent behavior was ‘not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation’s youth.’
The petition gathered over 270,000 signatures, which means the White House must respond.
Well the White House responded on Friday:
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.
Translation: The Deport Justin Bieber petition violated the White House petitions terms … and since Bieber’s case is still going on in court, they will not interfere, hence ‘we’ll leave it to others to comment.’
