"Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one."
That's the short and sweet response from the White House to a petition to deport Justin Bieber.
Nearly 275,000 people have signed the Deport Justin Bieber And Revoke His Green Card campaign that kicked off in January.
The petition reads: "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 nations youth.
"We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
The We the People platform on the White House website allows people to create and sign petitions that call for the federal government to take action on a range of issues.
In its response to the Bieber petition, the White House said, "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."
