Famed teen heart throb, Justin Bieber, is in trouble . . . again. On January 23, 2014, Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida, and charged with a DUI, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired driver’s license. According to reports, Bieber and fellow recording star, Khalil, were drag racing on a residential street in Miami Beach when police placed both men under arrest. Khalil, a California native, will face the consequences of a DUI—typically a fine, alcohol awareness classes, and perhaps jail time. But Bieber’s troubles are compounded by the fact that he is not an American citizen. Bieber is from Toronto, Ontario, and is reportedly present in the United States on an O-1 visa, a temporary visa available to foreign nationals who have demonstrated “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, education, business, athletics, the arts, or in the motion picture or television industries. Criminal conduct can potentially jeopardize a person’s ability to remain—or return—to the United States. Under U.S. immigration law, some crimes can result in deportation, while others may make it impossible to re-enter the country or become a permanent resident.
