After Justin Bieber was arrested multiple times, in and out of the United States, a petition was signed by more than 100,000 citizens asked the White House to deport the Canadian pop star.
The time has come for the White House to respond. According to ABC News, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, "That response will come I'm sure relatively soon. I don't have one now." He later added that visas were a matter for the Department of Homeland Security.
The petition was created on Jan. 23, after Bieber was arrested in Miami for drag racing. It starts with “We the People of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” and asks for Justin Bieber to be deported because he is "threatening the safety of our people."
Some petitions have taken up to two years to be reviewed, reports the Washington Times.
Bieber is also under investigation for egging his neighbor’s house which damaged $20,000 in property, and is also charged with assault in a case in Toronto.
