Justin Bieber Can Be Deported Back to Canada, Attorney Says
As Justin Bieber’s legal troubles grow, so does the possibility that immigration officials could send him back to his native country, Canada, reports ABC.
New York City immigration attorney Michael Wildes told ABC News:
Justin’s arrest early Thursday morning in Miami Beach for allegedly drag racing and driving under the influence (DUI — first-degree misdemeanors) are not necessarily crimes that would lead to deportation.
But if ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) wanted to go after him, they could make a case. That and the eggs is opening files in multiple government agencies and states, and could make it more likely.
The “eggs” he referred to is the ongoing LA police investigation into a neighbor’s accusation that Justin threw eggs at his house and caused $20,000 worth of damage.
Police searched his Calabasas home Jan. 14 for any connection between him and the egg-tossing incident and arrested his friend Lil Za, for alleged drug possession during the search. Justin has not been charged in the egg-throwing incident, but he could face a felony charge of vandalism if evidence indicates he was the culprit.
