Justin Beiber's getting deported

Petitions that have passed the 100,000 signature mark include one that asked the White House to build a Death Star and petitions of a more serious nature, like the one below asking Congress to change gun control laws.

A White House spokesman tells BuzzFeed the White House will be responding to the Bieber petition, saying, "Every petition that crosses the threshold is reviewed by the appropriate staff and receives a response."
