In January, some evil genius took to the White House website to start a petition to deport Justin Bieber back to his native Canada. Not quite as evil genius as offering the Taco Bell breakfast menu to Canucks if they take him back, but evil genius enough.
Anyway, the petition seeks to deport "the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing" Biebs and revoke his green card. "He is a terrible influence on our nations youth," it states, before continuing, "We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
The White House finally issued an official non-response on Friday, as the petition closed in on 274,000 signatures.
“Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one,” the White House officially responded in the most non-responsive way possible.
“We’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues,” they continued, thereby using a petition to deport the most annoying young person in America to talk about immigration reform.
Oh, you're a sly one, Obama Administration! They even included this oh-so-relatable gem to highlight some immigration numbers:
"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."
Meh. Immigration reform is important and all, but I think it would be kind of nice if the White House would address why they're letting a forgein youth who is constantly in trouble with the law keep his green card. Hey, it might evan get him to clean up his.
Do you think Justin Bieber should be deported?
