At first it was all done as a joke but then people started signing the petition like crazy and because of that, the White House was forced to respond. Now, team Obama is finally talking about the Bieber in America issue and here's what they had to say:
"Thanks for your petition and your participation in We the People.
Sorry to disappoint, but we won't be commenting on this one.
The We the People terms of participation state that, "to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition."
So we'll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber's case, but we're glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows...."
They go on to use this whole Justin situation as a way to preach about the immigration issues within our government. You can read about all of that stuff here.
Sorry, Americans. Looks like we're stuck with him for now...
