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.

What the heck??? Hundreds of immigrants get deported and this brat gets to do whatever he wants cause he's got some more cash than the average Joe? So unfair!!!! Some people that have so much to offer to America get deported, but not JB, no, he's rich and famous!

HE IS SOUGHT BY ARGENTINE LAWYER FOR AGRESSION! HIS BODYGUARDS HIT A PHOTOGRAPHER AND HE USED THE ARGENTINE FLAG TO WIPE THE FLOOR!!! STUPID IGNORANT *******. I HOPE HE IS PUT IN JAIL FOR ONCE, HE CAN`T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH EVERYTHING. SO, IF HE IS NOT DEPORTED TO CA HE WILL BE EXTRADITED TO ARGENTINA BY INTERPOL.

He's basically a music-industry manufactured gigolo for the sexual fantasies of underage girls

Thanks for clarifying Harvey. It would seem very odd to be deported for a felony egging !

Egging is a form of vandalism. Felony vandalism is a crime involving moral turpitude. If he is convicted of felony vandalism, the Feds could deport him.

How is it, then, that it's possible for Joe Guidice to possibly face deportation, since I don't believe he was charged with any of the crimes you mentioned?

Don't know much about immigration apparently. ICE will most definitely note 20k worth of damages in a felony destruction of property case. Ultimately it may not result in deportation, but it won't be glossed over simply because it was only eggs.
