According to The Washington Times, a petition has made it's way to President Barack Obama asking him to deport and revoke Bieber's visa.

"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," the online petition on the 'We The People' White House web page reads.

"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 launched the day Justin was arrested for DUI in Miami. It had nearly 6,000 signatures as of about 10 a.m. Friday and it still needs 94,000 more in order to earn an official response from the White House.

In case you didn't hear, the Biebs was arrested for DUI, resisting arrest and having an invalid driver's license in Miami Thursday morning. His bail was set at $2500 and the next day he was released from jail.

So can Justin really get the boot from the U.S. because of his latest legal troubles? An immigration lawyer told ABC that a first-time DUI charge usually isn't enough to get immigration authorities to pursue a deportation case but that it could be done.

Surprisingly, Justin is not in the U.S. on a green card, which would give him legal permanent residency. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he is in the United States on an O-1 visa. That specific visa is given to athletes, high-profile academics or others the government deems exceptional in their fields and worthy of letting into the country.

Do you think Justin should be deported from the United States? Will you or have you signed this petition?
