The Battle to Get Justin Bieber Deported



Last week, Justin Bieber found himself in even more hot water when he was arrested in Miami for a DUI, resisting arrest, and having an expired license. But that was really just the cherry on top of a tumultuous last few months for the singer who’s also currently under criminal investigation for egging his next door neighbor’s house, among other things. So, naturally, people want the Biebs shipped back to where he came from (Toronto, in case you forgot).

More than 110,000 people have now signed an online petition for Bieber to be deported to Canada and have his green card revoked. Because although the Biebs works and lives mainly in the U.S., specifically California, he’s still a Canadian citizen and that green card is the only thing legally keeping him in the States. But if the people get their way, that could change. Here’s what the petitioners have to say:

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 nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.

To get an official response from the White House, a petition must acquire a minimum of 100,000 signatures. So, technically, the WH has to make a comment. No word yet on what Obama will say, but according to the Hollywood Reporter, it’s highly unlikely he’ll actually be deported. Of course, the Beliebers are not letting this go down without a fight. They’ve launched a hilarious government-name-checking counter petition of their own:

The whole idea of Justin Drew Bieber getting deported, is completely unfair. He doesn’t deserve this…. With your help, we can stop it. He’s human. He’s not perfect. The media sees the bad side of him. Please. He’s saved so many lives. Including mine. A lifesaver, Shouldn’t deserve this.

Tragically, that one’s only up to 1,589 signatures.

    Has this ever happened before? Is this a precedent?

    Well as “DoloTheBandit” references, the U.S. tried to deport Slick Rick twice due to a felony conviction. But he eventually avoided it with a pardon from Gov. Paterson. And MF DOOM’s been de facto deported in the sense that the U.S. won’t let him re-enter the country without a visa since he got a UK passport in 2010.

    But the Biebs seems to be chillin’ for now since he hasn’t been “convicted of a violent crime or been sentenced to more than one year imprisonment.” YET…

Simple as that…now onto more important things other than these lame distractions. Smarten up PnP. smh.

    Just need more time. Let him come back. Just need a little time. Someone will end up dead and he’ll start pointing the finger at the beibas around him. It was that beiba over there! Yeah Lil Flip, Lil Twist, Lil whatever it was him. Yeah that one. I don’t even have this knife in my hand he forced me to pick it up. We just need more time. Don’t deport him yet. He still has a change to completely f*ck it up.

    I have to admit, I laughed pretty hard at the screenshot of @fredosoreoscake’s tweet. “If they deported every teenage[r] for making a mistak[e], there will be no one left” grammar and syntax aside, I love their assumption that all teenagers are foreigners, or their complete misunderstanding of the implications when one is ‘deported’.
