A petition titled “Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card” has gained more than 165,000 signatures on the White House’s official We The People petitions site. The threshold for White House appraisal of a petition issue is 100,000.

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.
