Bloomberg examines Justin Bieber deportation as White House petition grows

Pop star Justin Bieber has sparked a debate about immigration law.

His recent arrest, and other reports of bad behavior, has focused attention on what happens when foreign nationals break the law in the United States. Bloomberg looks at whether Bieber’s behavior could lead to deportation.

 The new video, courtesy of Bloomberg on Feb. 25, chronciles the pop star’s exploits and the new petition to deport Bieber.

“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society,” the petition reads.

The “Deport Justin Bieber” WhiteHouse.gov petition has made some noteworthy history, becoming the second-most popular petition in the website’s history.

A 2012 petition asking that Westboro Baptist Church be declared a hate group is the top petition with 367,180 signatures, according to the Times.

The signup period for Skrzynski’s “Deport Justin Bieber” petition ended Saturday and generated a whopping 262,817 signatures – 162,817 more than the required 100,000 needed to receive a response from The White House.
