Justin Bieber

WON'T BE DEPORTED

Even If He's a Felon

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber could go to prison for years -- very worst case scenario -- for his egg vandalism ... but he will NOT be deported to Canada.

There are stories circulating that the stakes are high for Bieber -- as in getting thrown out of the U.S.

Simply not true.  The law is clear.  In order to be deported for a crime, the offender must commit what is called an "aggravated" offense.  The law lists the various offenses, including:

-- possession of explosive materials or firearms
-- possession of child porn
-- illicit drug trafficking
-- alien smuggling
-- threats against the President
-- Sabotage or treason

Eggs are not on the list.

There is one catch-all -- crimes involving "moral turpitude."  But that's defined as crimes that shock the public conscience.  Egging just doesn't cut it.

Tmz you're just flat out wrong on this. Malicious destruction of property IS clearly listed as involving moral turpitude. One could argue that 20 grand in damage and the fact that he chose his neighbor specifically makes it malicious. Is it likely? No. But is there a possibility? Yes.
