WASHINGTON (AP) — If Justin Bieber gets booted from the U.S. for his alleged misdeeds, it won’t be because the White House made the move.
Nearly 275,000 people signed an Internet petition calling the Canadian-born teen idol reckless and asking President Barack Obama to revoke The Beeb’s green card.
The number of online petitioners is far more than what’s needed to produce an official response through the White House’s “We the People” program.
But the White House says it won’t comment on the issue. There is a provision in the program that lets the White House decline to address certain petitions.
Bieber heads to trial in his drunken drag racing case next month.
