Well, you can’t say they didn’t try.
After filing a petition in late January that garnered more than 270,000 signatures to deport Justin Bieber from the United States, the White House took the high road and issued a long-winded "no comment" to jettisoning the Canadian pop star.
The petition, created in Michigan, was short and to the point, reading: "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 nation’s youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
However, the White House responded with a quick "Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one," followed by an explanation of the problems with a "broken" immigration system and the need for "common sense immigration reform."
The response also included a clever comparison of immigration reform shrinking the national deficit by $1 trillion over the next 20 years, or "12.5 billion concert tickets — or 100 billion copies of Mr. Bieber’s debut album."
However with this White House proclamation, it appears the "Biebs" will remain in America.
