Justin Bieber deportation petition reaches White House

Will Justin Bieber be sent back to Canada for good? It could happen, now that a petition calling for the pop star’s deportation from the United States has just passed the 100,00 signature threshold mark. Following his arrest last week in Miami for multiple reasons – alleged drag-racing, resisting arrest and DUI – a petition was launched on the White House website on January 23, calling for the Canadian singer’s deportation. The petition explained why it’s calling for Justin’s deportation: “He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation’s youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”

The petition, which is also asking U.S. government officials to revoke Justin’s green card, reached more than 103,000 signatures in six days. The White House raised its signature requirement to 100,000 last year to make sure that only serious petitions were given attention. According to the White House website, if a petition receives 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the Obama administration will have to answer to it. Now that the Justin Bieber petition has more than the required number of signatures, it looks like the U.S. government will have to address the situation. In response to this petition, a couple other petitions popped up on the White House website, asking for the pop star to not be deported. It’s been a rocky few weeks for the Biebs, who’s currently looking to sell his Calabasas home following a string of incidents that led to a police search in his house and the arrest of pal Lil Za. ~Yara Matar

    He’s such a nimrod. He has it all and still isn’t smart enough to be discreet and stay under the radar if he’s going to do illegal acts. No wonder Americans want him out. I certainly wouldn’t want him in my neighbourhood, not that there is any danger of that…

    You can’t deport gangsta’s like Justin Bieber — gangsta’s have been propping up the recording industry for years.

  3. Lou • January 30, 2014 @ 1:14 PM

    With all the other more pressing issues like unemployment and poverty, THIS is what generates American to speak up?

    What a sad state of affairs in America today.

    Not that our country is doing so much better but I don’t see thousands petitioning to stop the government’s book burning and science-censoring activities, which DO affect us.

  4. enza • January 30, 2014 @ 1:17 PM

    really?????? you got to be kidding me he’s not a die hard criminial people get a grip ,you have actual murderers in your country terrorist but you do nothing about that ,hes an entertainer …..hes akid for god sake this is why your country is going to shit…because you have mindless people doing these sort of things …

  5. Hello • January 30, 2014 @ 1:56 PM

    Justin is not a kid, hes going to be 20 years old this year. I personally think it would be hilarious if he got deported, maybe he would stop acting like a complete idiot. Who the heck smiles in a mugshot? Its like hes proud to be arrested, he needs that smirk wiped off his face

  6. Kelly • January 30, 2014 @ 2:02 PM

    I live in Canada and I don’t want him back here either.what a complete embarrassment.

  7. Jeannieb • January 30, 2014 @ 2:23 PM

    Justin Beiber is the result of the celebrity worship culture from society. They act this way because they can…and we allow it all the way to our court rooms. My interest will be to watch and compare both American and Canadian court rooms in their dealing with him. Judges experience immense pressure to be lenient…by whom though? And why does this pressure get success? Are all of you okay with the double standard? What if your son or daughter engaged in the same conduct..what would happen? Perhaps you are all okay with it. I’m not. The end to this has to begin somewhere.

  8. KitKat • January 30, 2014 @ 2:25 PM

    Justin Bieber is a threat to society … but guns on the other hand … we can’t give up our guns!!! How will we protect ourselves from gangsta’s like Bieber?!?!?

  9. Pete • January 30, 2014 @ 3:46 PM

    Deport this punk to Afghanistan!

  10. gbh999 • January 30, 2014 @ 4:59 PM

    With $100 Million in the bank, anyone can hire a security team, and run around the world, acting like a complete jerk-off.
    I really don’t think that the good people in Canada, need to have this semi-illiterate, running around their country, in an out-of-control state, either.
    Bieber and his manager, remind me of the monkey, and the organ grinder. I wonder how long it will be before the world finds out that the uneducated little drip-shit, is missing a big bag of money, from his tours. That will keep this ridiculous side-show going for a few more years.

  11. gbh999 • January 30, 2014 @ 5:00 PM

    @ Pete
    They can put rob ford, his brother doug, and harper on the same plane. They can call it the F Troop.

  12. Silvana D'Abate • January 30, 2014 @ 5:16 PM

    It is truly a shame how social media had jaded
    So many people & created monsters in our
    Society. It’s a ridiculous petition & racist
    Comment, how many juvenile thugs do the
    American people have to cope with. Celebrities
    Like Paul McCartney the Rolling Stones were caught with drugs
    & gotten off easily so many times in the media.

    It’s called having a good publicist. Does wonders
    Look at Britney Spears. Human beings need
    More compassion. There are serious offenders
    In the world causing real bodily harm.

  13. Me • January 30, 2014 @ 5:35 PM

    But we don’t want him back 😐

  14. Margaret • January 30, 2014 @ 7:28 PM

    It’s really a shame he’s gone the way he has. Sounds extremely immature and pretty full of himself. Paul Anka was a teen throb and he didn’t make an ass out of himself. He made everyone proud to say he was a fellow Canadian. Perhaps Justin has lacked strong parenting … apparently Paul Anka’s father read him the riot act telling him he better not do anything that would embarrass his father.

  15. fdsfad • January 30, 2014 @ 9:49 PM

    Can there be a petition to kill him? I’d sign that!

  16. Bob • January 30, 2014 @ 10:02 PM

    Justin should go live with Rob Ford (Toronto mayor). Both their stupid behaviors make them a perfect fit. Neither one is capable to understand how lucky they are to have what they have instead of acting out in a way to destroy what they have.

  17. nancy • January 31, 2014 @ 2:03 AM

    Too bad they don’t put the immature punk in jail for a few years! It would be interesting to see how self important he is then!

  18. Linda • January 31, 2014 @ 5:09 AM

    Bieber isn’t any more popular here in Canada just because he’s originally from here than he is in the U.S. We (and I think I can speak for a LOT of fellow Canadians like myself) don’t want the little arrogant, self-absorbed punk ass either!!!! Yeah, I’m all for shipping him to Afghanistan too. I cannot stand this overgrown brat. And along with the idiot Ford brothers, he contributes nothing positive at all to the image of Canada- he’s just another eye sore that makes us embarrassed and ashamed to be Canadian.

  19. Snepts • January 31, 2014 @ 6:31 AM

    This is so typical, the biggest name in show business is Canadian and all Canadians do is dump on their own. Don’t be haterz y’all when you can own the podium!

  20. Ice • January 31, 2014 @ 7:45 AM

    I think Bieber is doing all of this as a work up to becoming the next mayor of Toronto, the only thing missing now is a crack video and who knows it may already be out there. Only time will tell.

  21. Snepts • January 31, 2014 @ 7:48 AM

    Hey Ice, why be mayor when you can be prime minister?

  22. Gerry • January 31, 2014 @ 9:08 AM

    So to sum this up:
    “you want to deport him because he is a bad influence on American society”

    My question: What are you going to due about all of your current American singers that do far, far worse than Justin? what about all those American stars that drink, do drugs, go to rehab, do it all over again? Robert Downey Jr…. look at his past, now you put him on a throne and celebrate him. You allow Charlie Sheen to stay on TV after his dunk escapade, his interviews with hookers on tv.

    Yet, you want to throw Justin out because of what he will do to your society?

    103,000 people just showed the rest of the worlds society just how ignorant and self absorbed Americans are. Clean up your own house before you worry about your neighbors yard.

  23. Patrick B. • January 31, 2014 @ 10:25 AM

    I’m canadian and we don’t want him either, stop dumping your trash in our yards, he’s yours now, keep him, put him in jail or ship him to another country but we won’t take responsability for the little brat.

    Thanks

    The Canadians.

  24. Charlee • January 31, 2014 @ 2:55 PM

    He thinks he has it made in the shade and can get away with anything. I say throw his sorry ass in jail,and mean real jail for a couple of months that MIGHT wipe that smirk off his face,but somehow I doubt it. I don’t want him back in Canada either if this how he is going to behave.

  25. Moe • January 31, 2014 @ 3:53 PM

    Look at all the hater’s on here… Wow

    What happened to love thy neighbour? Stay classy would ya USA

  26. Summon • January 31, 2014 @ 6:29 PM

    Justin Bieber should face the full consequences of his actions. He’s an ‘adult’, and thus, is supposed to be cognizant of and subject to these consequences.

    He’s in jail because of crimes committed, yes? We don’t want him back until he’s paid for those crimes the same way any random punk would have paid for them.

    Signed,

    Another Canadian

  27. Snepts • February 1, 2014 @ 2:32 AM

    Why hasn’t Tribute.ca reported that Justin’s plane to NJ was grounded due to suspicions there was marijuana on board? This site is failing its loyal readers by not keeping up with breaking news stories that matter!

  28. squirt • February 2, 2014 @ 2:54 AM

    He looks like Miley Cyrus without all her clown makeup on.

  29. SClub7 • February 2, 2014 @ 8:16 PM

    I’m not defending Justin Bieber BUT this is a joke that Americans think he is a threat to their safety and a bad influence on young people, RIGHT!?!? Let’s take a look here at the real troubles impacting American society (unemployment, racism, political interference, etc. the list could go on and on). The U.S. has a terrible global image as a result of their own doing; they are their own worst enemy. The most racist nation that treats everyone in the world including its own citizens like terrorists. The U.S. is a nation on the decline and whether they deport Justin Bieber or not will do nothing to help their sorry image.

  30. Chris Topher • February 2, 2014 @ 8:24 PM

    Justin Bieber is proof that girls are stupid. He’s only popular because of so many dumb girls. And they say girls mature faster than guys.

  31. Snepts • February 3, 2014 @ 5:03 AM

    Chris Topher — if that is your REAL name — the fact that you’re alone proves girls are smarter than boys.

  32. Velveta • February 6, 2014 @ 10:23 PM

    The best advice I could give Justin Beiber is to spend time watching Celine Dion. Not only is she multi-talented, gracious, humble and an international superstar, she has never become full of herself, is an asset to Canada and has raised the bar in excellent in everything she does. Justin, call her and ask her to be your mentor because God knows you need one right now. And your parents should spend more time sitting you down and reminding you of where you came from and how you had nothing and now that you have something, don’t risk throwing it all away. Food for thought. Peace out!

  33. proud Canadian • March 9, 2014 @ 10:34 AM

    Justin Beiber is a jerkoff
    Grow up and go back to the
    nice kid you were
    Hes an embarrassment to Canada
    Send him to Afghanistan
    Teach him a lesson
