No White House response to Justin Bieber deportation petition

Readers may be aware that visas are available to individuals for a variety of reasons, even entertainers. As is the case with anyone who wants to work in the United States, entertainers need to secure a visa. This can be a long and complicated process requiring the assistance of an immigration lawyer who understands how the process works.

Securing a visa does not necessarily bring a close to the relationship one has with his or her immigration attorney. While in the U.S. an entertainer must follow the prescribed laws. The failure to do so could result in deportation. One entertainer who has recently been in the news for this is Justin Bieber.

A native of Canada the young man has recently run into trouble with the law. This trouble, allegedly with among other things drugs, has prompted some people to demand that he be deported. In fact, more than 273,000 individuals have signed a petition requesting this. Specifically, in addition to abusing drugs, it claims he is destructive, reckless and dangerous.

So far the White House has not commented directly on the petition. Recently however it did mention the teen heartthrob in conjunction with the immigration plan the President hopes to see implemented. Specifically it referenced how sales of an album or tickets to a concert by someone from another country, such as Bieber, could impact the economy of the U.S. in a positive way.

When anyone with any background is in need of a visa to work in the U.S. the best place to start is an immigration lawyer. He or she should be able to determine what options are available.
