Many Americans are fans of Justin Bieber … but at least 100,000 others want him out!

Since his arrest on Thursday on drunken driving charges in Miami Beach, Florida, an online petition submitted through the White House website has garnered more than 109,000 signatures – surpassing the 100,000 needed to be officially considered by the President of the United States.

Created Jan. 23 by a person in Detroit known as J.A., the petition asks the Obama administration to deport the 19-year-old back to his native Canada because he is “wrongly” representing the U.S. in the pop culture arena.

“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 reads.

Bieber returned to the states after a weekend getaway in Panama. On Tuesday a judge set his arraignment for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. His attorney is expected to appear on his behalf.
