The White House actually responds to the petition to deport Justin Bieber

In a devastating blow to non-Beliebers the world over, the White House’s official comment on the petition to deport the embattled pop star is officially “no comment,” as reported on The Fix.

“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,” wrote the White House in a statement on its Web site last week.

Started in January, the petition to deport the Biebs and revoked the formerly bang-sporting singer’s green card received more than 273,00 signatures–more than double the amount needed for an official executive branch response according to “We the People,” the online tool for petitioning the White House.

But response doesn’t mean action.

According to the rules, “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.”

Basically the buck has officially been passed.
