White House to respond to Justin Bieber deportation petition

Posted: Updated:

The White House will have to weigh in on whether Justin Bieber can be deported.

A petition on the official White House website calling for the pop star's deportation passed the 100,000 signature threshold on Wednesday, the mark at which the White House says it responds to a petition's demands.

"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture," the petition reads, which was started on Jan. 23. That's the day Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Fl. for impaired driving and illegal drag racing.

"He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth," the petition goes on to say.

A White House spokesman said that every petition that crosses the 100,000 mark will be reviewed by White House staff and get a response.

Bieber, 19, is from Canada and is reportedly living and working in the United States on a visa for entertainers.
