Justin Bieber

Egging Conviction Could Make Him

Persona Non Grata in U.S.

Justin Bieber
could be ORDERED TO LEAVE THE U.S. if he's charged and convicted of vandalism in the egging case ... TMZ has learned.

Bieber -- a Canadian citizen -- is allowed to live in the U.S. because he has what's called an O-1 Work Permit ... which Immigration issues for foreigners with "extraordinary abilities."  Lots of athletes and entertainers get O-1 status.

But here's the thing.  Under the Immigration laws, if someone is convicted of a crime of "moral turpitude" -- Immigration can deem that person "inadmissible" for work status in the U.S.

Now get this ... "moral turpitude" includes crimes involving "malicious destruction of property."

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. wants the D.A. to file FELONY vandalism charges because they say he caused $20K in damages.  And, the Sheriff's Dept. thinks Bieber was malicious, especially because in the middle of the attack he yelled​, "f*** you.  I got another one for you actually."

Even if the D.A. decides to file misdemeanor vandalism charges, that could doom Bieber when he reapplies for his 0-1 Permit 2 years from now.  If it's moral turpitude, it doesn't matter if it's a misdemeanor or a felony.

I suppose all this talk about throwing him out of the country helps sell papers, but get real, it's never going to happen. This kid pays more taxes to the government than probably all the people wanting him out combined.
As for the $20,000. damage from a few eggs, bull crap. I'm surprised that figure has not been challenged yet.
Or maybe it has and it's not been released yet. True facts don't sell papers near as well as BS.

They might just save his life by separating him from his loser entourage.

They'll never convict him in California. If you're a celebrity with money you get to skate. I'd like to see his career crash and burn. He doesn't appreciate what he has, wonder if he'll care when he loses it.

Extraordinary abilities? WTF ... can he talk to the dead or something? He doesn't play sports, he sings like a teenage girl, he raps like a little white child on YouTube. The only extraordinary thing about him is that he's still alive, and hopefully that will change soon.

Quit teasing us TMZ. You know darned well the govmint can't find their asses with both hands. They can't even find each other's asses with both hands, oh, hang on, they MIGHT be able to do that. God knows they can't do anything else.

Don't get your hopes up this idiot will be barred from the US. There are several players in baseball alone who should not be allowed in the US because they committed various visa frauds and they get a visa (identity fraud and marriage fraud) like clockwork every year.

There are so many real criminals in the USA, why are they so focused on a house being egged?? Why not focus on why so many random people have guns and they use them...on real people??? The USA is ass backwards. Leave the kid alone and stop with the useless attempts to bring him down. OMG the people trying to bring him down are as annoying as him acting like a teenager!
