White House declines petition to deport Justin Bieber

on April 20, 2014, 9:56am

A petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada drew upward of 250,000 signatures on the White House’s website, requiring a formal response from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. On Saturday, President Obama’s administration finally issued its decision — or, rather, non-decision.

The White House declined to comment on Bieber’s legal status, explaining that in order “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.” Bieber is currently facing a series of charges stemming from separate arrests in Toronto and Miami.

Rather, the White House used the opportunity to push for immigration reform as a whole, while also working in a few Bieber-related puns for good measure.

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.

That status quo isn’t good for our economy or our country. We need common-sense immigration reform to make sure everyone plays by the same set of rules.

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.

You better believe it.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

14 million Americans unemployed and B.O. is worried about 11.6 million illegal aliens!

As for your facts B.O.,where’s the link?

What’s the cost of the welfare for 11.6 million illegal aliens for the next 20 years B.O. ,the American tax payers have a right to know.

How much Food and Water will 11.6 million illegal aliens consume over the next 20 years B.O.?

And finally B.O. what do you tell the immigrants that are waiting in their own country to enter here the “LEGAL” way,they have a right to know.

Remember in November 2014 when you vote,that a new Broom sweeps clean.

“Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost 1 trillion in the next 20 years.”
How? How will poor, poorly educated people help grow our economy, as opposed to less unemployment and a higher min wage which would be the clear result of deporting illegals?
Can supporters point to any other country in the world that agrees with this assessment?

You are totally ignorant apparently. It’s BECAUSE Justin Bieber is not a U.S. citizen he can be deported legallyt. You idiot. An American citizen gets a few benfits although our government is trying to give everything else awy to forieng countries. A foreigner (i.e. non-citizen) can be de[ported for commiting crimes in America or for other illegal activity or undesirable activity. It’s precisely what Justin, a Canadian citizen, would be a prime prosepect for deportation, fool. Believe it or n ot it is a privilege to be an American citizen. Although sometimes I’m beginning to wonder if we should be deporting some Wall Street people to haitie or the South Pole.

No surprised what does the white house give a crap about? Certainly not it’s citizens. Of course not they have to protect the illegals and the dregs of society……

It comes down to the haves and the have not’s. If you are a liberal who has ties to the white house, Laws don’t apply. However if you are a young girl from Europe over staying her student visa and married to an American you get deported. By the way that is my wife we are talking about. This country’s politician’s decide which laws to and not to enforce depending on what demographic you come from has to stop. This Country is truly in a death spiral and until we can elect officials that enforce and apply all laws to everybody the destruction and division will continue into a tragedy.

DEPORTATION PETITION! LAND OF THE FREE! WE THINK NOT!
Accusations do not a criminal make. Convictions do.
JB does not have a criminal record, only accusations.
It’s a guarantee, many petitioners have criminal records.
Common sense will prevail. Hidden agendas will not. LOL
