WASHINGTON -- A petition to "We the People," a site set up by the Obama Administration to give American citizens a voice, is calling on the United States Government to revoke Justin Bieber's green card and deport him back to Canada.

Around noon Wednesday it had reached more than 100,000 signatures -- the threshold in which the Obama Administration will have to respond.

Only about 24 hours later, the petition had doubled to more than 200,000 signatures.

The text of the online document reads as follows:

"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 petition was filed on Jan. 23, the day the Biebs was arrested in Miami under suspicion of DUI.

It'll likely take weeks for the White House to respond to the Bieber petition, but it's unlikely he would actually be deported.

In 2013, more than 100,000 people signed a petition requesting that the U.S. build a 'Death Star' like the one famously depicted in Star Wars. The White House responded to that petition by saying it does not support the destruction of other planets.
