Justin Bieber should not be deported. People focus on the bad side of him and not the good.

This could be fun. I will allow my opponet to post her first argument.

Justin Bieber should not be deported. I'm not saying he's perfect but imagine how it must be to grow up with people watching your every move. The media don't really post things like how he donates money or visits sick fans. They only focus on the bad things such as taking drugs. He helped build a school in Guatemala!

Boy did I feel awkward typing “Justin Bieber” in to google.

Presentation

Justin Beiber should be and can be deported because he is not a United States Citizen[1].

As my opponent acknowledged Justin Bieber does drugs, and drug crimes are eligible for deportation[2].

Just because Justin is a celebrity does not make him above the law.

He can be deported, it's just not fair if he is. Lots of people use drugs and do not get deported. Just because everyone knows him doesn't mean that he should get deported.

He does help other people but because most media sources focus on negative things about celebrities (not just Justin Bieber.) People don't realize the good things that they do. I'm not saying he cannot get deported, I'm just saying it's not fair.

Here is the crazy thing about the other people, they don't get caught or they are not foreign. The law is the law. A judge might take his "good works" as evidence toward his character but is it enough? I don't think so.

For example lets say John Smith came down from Canada and got drunk, did drugs, was arrested, assaulted an officer, they would be deported. So because Justin is famous he should be treated differently?

People do get caught using drugs and some are foreign. Justin was offered a plea deal which was
-Plead no contest to reckless driving
-Attend an alcohol education class.
- Attend a 'victim impact panel.'
-Install an ignition interlock device for 3 months.

If he agrees, they will drop the DUI and resisting arrest charges. I personally agree that this plea deal is way more suitable than getting deported.

The only reason he got that deal was he is a celebrity no other reason. He should be deported any other person visiting from Canada would be what makes him special?

Not just celebrities get plea deals, many normal people do. Also, actually some people don't get deported. He's not the only person that hasn't been deported for similar charges.

Justin Bieber SHOULD be deported. He is a disgrace to music, and he is a teenager who thinks fame is more important than anything. He got brainwashed by all the fame at such a young age. He almost killed a damn kid, driving his Lambo. What 19 year old needs a damn LAMBO?! He is using his fame, for bad purposes. He was smiling in this mug shot, like are you kidding me? I would gladly slap that smile right off his face, he is smiling at the fact that he has a DUI, and that he was higher than a kite. What is so funny about being higher than a kite, and drunk trying to drag race somebody? He could have seriously hurt somebody, and his career would of been over for vehicular manslaughter, and your "adorable" little Justin Bieber wouldn't be so "adorable" anymore. SEND HIM BACK!
