Well, Texas, you have done it.
As of 8:40 a.m. ET, more than 62,000 people have already signed the petition on The White House website to let Texas peacefully secede from United States of America and “create its own NEW government.”
The petition, created on Nov. 9, argues for secession.
According to The White House, the petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days in order to be considered.
“If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response,” explains the website.
