(Newser) – The latest wacky "We the People" petition is one you might actually want to sign: So far more than 101,000 people are asking President Obama to deport Canadian Justin Bieber and revoke his green card. Why? Because Biebs is "wrongly represent[ing]" Americans "in the world of pop culture," what with his "dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing" behavior. He's a threat to Americans' safety and a "terrible influence" on America's youth, the petition reads. (And since it passed the 100,000 threshold, TMZ reminds us, it's going to get an official White House response.) While another anti-Bieber petition has more than 10,000 signatures, two rival petitions begging Bieber be allowed to stay in the US have only managed to rack up fewer than 2,000 signatures between them.

As for what's actually next for Bieber, he's set to be arraigned in his DUI-and-drag-racing case on Valentine's Day, Fox News reports. And he hasn't been exonerated in that egg-throwing incident either, a detective tells the New York Daily News; that case will be presented to prosecutors within the next few days. And apparently that incident, just the latest part of his ongoing feud with his neighbors, has led Bieber to decide to leave his Calabasas neighborhood and move elsewhere, sources tell TMZ. (As for career plans? He's thinking tattoo parlor.)
