The White House has two words for those who want President Barack Obama to deport Justin Bieber: No comment.

Nearly 275,000 people signed an Internet petition calling the Canadian-born teen idol reckless. They asked Obama to revoke his green card. A green card allows people from other countries to work in the U.S.

That's far more than required to merit an official response through the White House's "We the People" program.

The White House says it's sorry to disappoint, but it won't be commenting. It's citing a limitation that allows the White House to decline to address certain petitions.

But the White House is using the occasion to argue that an immigration overhaul could shrink deficits by nearly $1 trillion over two decades. The White House says that's equivalent to 12.5 billion concert tickets or 100 billion copies of Bieber's debut album.

Critical thinking challenge: As a citizen of Canada, how does Justin Bieber benefit the United States if at all?

    In my opinion Justin Bieber is a bad row model but a great singer. The White House
    is starting to look as if there going to let Justin Bieber stay in the states because of the money.
    I'm starting to think my niece is in to him. I used to dislike him til I heard his music.

    The white house has no comment in reply to an Internet petition that agrees to deport Justin Bieber from the United States of America and revoke his green card. If you think about it, Justin doesn't have a small job. Singing, writing, traveling, performing, touring, meeting fans, doing interviews, interacting with fans, being with family, and dealing with the hate is so much on a young boy like Justin. Growing up and finding yourself is already so difficult at his age so imagine doing it in front of the world? Does anybody here even realize how difficult it must be to have people tell you to kill yourself and to leave the country and that you have no talent? Everybody seems so against bullying until they hear the words Justin Bieber, so please be informed because if it was your kid then you wouldn't want him to get all of the hate that Justin gets. Also, what Justin did WAS A MINOR OFFENSE. Obviously it was a big thing that he did and no it isn't good, but legally it is not a major offense and if he wasn't "Justin Bieber one of the world's biggest pop stars" then nobody would know about it or try to get him deported because it was his first arrest and it wasn't a big enough offense to get him deported forever. Lastly, thing about the girls that wouldn't ever get to meet him or see him on tour, that is so many girls' lifesavers and I don't think you want the next Justin Bieber headlining story to be about a massive amount of already depressed Beliebers committing suicide or being hospitalized for attempting to on, not-so coincidentally, the day you take away their idol. Or maybe just maybe this 20 year old boy under the pressure of the world would be so broken, he might even take himself too.

When everywhere else, people are very happy to tell their opinion on him.

    This article is about Justin Beibers deportation. The White House does not have a comment on whether he should be deported. Nearly 275,000 people signed an internet petition concerning the Canadian born idol very reckless. Justin Beiber has caused a huge comosion in America and i don't think anyone likes it. People have asked Obama to revoke his green card. I feel very disappointed in Justin he is being very reckless and isn't thinking wisely. He should be more careful when he is disrupting the lives of others.

    I do not think the U.S. should deport Justin because he is one of the biggest pop stars in america and is making a lot of money. He is a big icon on its citizens and without him, people all over the world would get mad.

    Bieber should definitely should get deported his actions are just going to more out of hand. he should just go to Canada and leave us alone. He does nothing positive he's always doing stupid stuff so why should he stay here.

    They should deport him because he thinks his money is an easy way out of the trouble he gets into. Barak Obama should just take away his green card because he needs to learn his lesson.
