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.

Deporting the kid is stupid, what they need to do is have him to complete maintenance on the neighbors property including cleaning the sidewalk with a tooth brush. Than have paparazzi out there taking pictures. Give him something to be humble about.

They're going to make an example out of him... that if you have money you can make all your troubles go away with the right amount. Just don't make the payments too obvious or you'll get caught slippin.

Canada would never let a punk like Biebs into their country for 5 minutes, yet we have to endure him for the duration.

Pack your $hit and MOVE! Quit torturing your neighborhood. I can't imagine having a skate board ramp ( party park) next to my house. Buy some land in the desert somewhere. Fly the drug man to your house, bus your homies in, wreck the place with parties. Now the Korney Ho KarTrashian is moving in. Damn, I feel sorry for the neighborhood.

The O visa (or any temporary visa) does not guarantee him anything. His visa can be pulled and cancelled at any time. Every time he comes/enters the US, he goes through an inspection and he can be denied at any time.
