White House Responds to Justin Bieber Deportation Petition
It sounds like someone in the White House is a Belieber!
After more than 273,000 people signed a petition to deport Canadian Justin Bieber, following his wild antics including his January arrest in Miami, the We the People site has responded … and in quite an entertaining manner.
“Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one,” the statement begins.
“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.”
“We need common-sense immigration reform to make sure everyone plays by the same set of rules,” the response continues. “Not only is it the right thing to do morally, it’s the right thing for our country: Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next 20 years. For those of you counting at home, that’s 12.5 billion concert tickets — or 100 billion copies of Mr. Bieber’s debut album.”
What do you think of the White House’s response?
