Mark Warner would sign petition to deport Justin Bieber

(CNN) - Sen. Mark Warner is all for efforts to boot pop superstar Justin Bieber out of the country.

A petition on the White House's "We the People" site created last month to deport the troubled Canadian singer and revoke his green card has almost 250,000 signatures.

"As a dad with three daughters, is there someplace I can sign?" Warner said Tuesday on FM 99’s “Rumble in the Morning” radio show when asked about the petition.

The Virginia Democrat later tweeted his willingness to sign on with a link to the station's story: "It's true: I'm not a #Belieber."

The White House petition points to Bieber's "dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug abusing" behavior as a misrepresentation of American pop culture and a "terrible influence on our nation’s youth."

Bieber, 19, was arrested last week in Toronto, accused of assaulting his limousine driver in December. He also faces charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license after being stopped by police in Miami Beach, Florida, last month.

    Wish someone would start a petition to deport the Bush Family. They've done more to ruin the nation than Justin could do in two lifetimes.

    I can't blame him. Given the recent Bieber activity, I would want him gone as well. If he paid 20% of what he makes at each concert to local charities and another 20% to the state and town to pay for the police and other security programs.

    Why not start with the threat of revoking his Visa/work papers with his next offense. maybe he'll self deport or leave for another county before his next arrest. Then we can deny him re-entry.

    Time to build a fence at the Canadian border. Bieber and Cruz are causing more trouble than they are worth. They are law breakers who have over stayed their welcome.

    Mark, can you initial my name too to deport this singer back to Canada with Ted Cruz too.
    PS: we need very stringent immigration system because foreigners are raping our benefits such as SS, Medicare.
