Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next 20 years,” the statement continued. “For those of you counting at home, that’s 12.5 billion concert tickets — or 100 billion copies of Mr. Bieber’s debut album.”
Ultimately the White House sided with Justin Bieber. In the beginning of this year a petition asking for the Canadian star to be deported and have his Green Card revoked got more than 100.000 signatures. The petition has become the second most popular petition in the three-year history of President Obama’s online petition program. The White House ultimately refused to comment on Justin Bieber’s case but used the opportunity to talk about immigration issues.
